How about a midfield in 2 years that contains Havertz, Jones, and FabinhoCurtis Jones is the reason why I don't see the point in the Havertz deal. Havertz seems a half option but not a perfect one for 4 or 5 roles in 433 but they're the same roles Jones seems a half option for. Not a perfect fit either of them but both seem better suited to 4231. Havertz may be the better talent (not 100% convinced as we haven't seen what Jones could do in Germany) but if he is I don't think it'll be enough of an improvement to deny a place to a passionate, local lad, already here and purchase an extremely expensive player who would have to come and adapt to league and team (not a guarantee look at Keita). If we were buying one or the other I would want the better player regardless of price difference but it doesn't seem a worthwhile deal to me as we already have Jones who could end up special himself.
