How Man United could line up with £70million playmaker

Kai Havertz Bayer Leverkusen

Manchester United have been linked with German international and Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz lately.

Yesterday, we covered a report (via The Sun) claiming that the Red Devils are in the driving seat to hire the services of the the 20-year-old star, who could cost around £70million in the summer transfer window.

The question is, how Man United could line up with the Kaiser if he does end up moving to Old Trafford?

In our previous post, we have pointed out that the versatile Bundesliga playmaker can effectively play in multiple offensive positions. Naturally, he is a central attacking midfielder but he has also excelled on the right wing and in the CF role as well.

As far as the CAM position is concerned, I think Bruno Fernandes must start. The Portuguese attacker joined us in the winter transfer window and mainly played in the No.10 role behind the striker in February.

Deservedly, in just his first month, he won the PL Player of the Month prize. So, I do not think that we should move the Seleccao star.

In the center forward role Martial has mainly played for us but the French star is not an out and out center forward and same is the case with Havertz. So a natural No.9 is needed.

For the right wing, we signed Daniel James, who is really fast and impressed in his first month with us. He netted 3 goals in 4 league appearances in August 2019 but since then, the Welsh international has not been able to find the net.

Therefore, a top right winger is needed as well. If we can lure Havertz then Solskjaer must utilize the German on the right wing. The youngster has scored 5 goals and provided as many assists for Leverkusen while playing on the right flank this term.

Here is how Man United could line up with Kai Havertz:
