Manchester United have been interested in signing Kai Havertz for quite some time and the latest reports are intriuing.
According to a story exclusively covered by The Sun, Manchester City have joined Man Utd in the race to sign the German international, who has been in top form for Bayer Leverkusen.
The famous British source have claimed that the Bundesliga side want £100million from the sale of their prized asset but due to the ongoing pandemic, he could be available for a fee of £70million.
Last season, the 20-year-old scored 20 goals in all competitions and also provided 7 assists for the German club.
This time around, he only managed to score 2 league goals in the first half of the campaign but has immensely improved since the turn of the year.
In 9 Bundesliga appearances so far in 2020, the youngster has directly contributed in 12 goals (8 goals and 4 assists). On Monday, he captained Bayer Leverkusen and netted brace to earn all three points against Werder Bremen. After the game, manager Peter Bosz heavily praised Havertz and said (Goal):
“Kai is a special player, but I don’t think he played his best game today. He can do much better.”
Earlier today, the Kaiser netted yet another brace, this time against Borussia Monchengladbach away from home.
The 7-capped international is naturally a central attacking midfielder but he can effectively play as a right winger and even as a center forward if needed. In the last two league games, he was deployed in the strike-force, scored 3 goals and provided an assist as well.
We definitely lack depth and quality in the attacking third and luring a versatile talent like Havertz would surely improve Solskjaer’s offense. In your view, should the Norwegian spend £70million to secure his signing.
