Kai Havertz admits the fee Chelsea paid for him was intimidating.
The Germany international is in his third season with the Blues, having joined for €80m from Bayer Leverkusen.
Havertz told the Guardian: "I don't understand how they can be paid so much money for a player, but in football that's normal.
"This brings a lot of pressure; people thought I was Messi, I was only 20-21.
"They just see the price your club paid and you have to play great right from the start. Day one. You finally feel that pressure."
