The media outlet have reported that Barcelona and Man City are in the lime light as well but the Catalan giants are mainly looking to lure Neymar and the Kaiser is not interested in moving to the Sky Blues because they might not take part in the Champions League next term.

Havertz is a versatile talent, who can effectively play on the flank and even as a center forward but mainly, he is a central attacking midfielder, who likes to play in the hole behind the striker.

Last season, he scored 20 goals in all competitions for the Bundesliga side and in the current campaign, so far, he has directly contributed in 18 goals (10 goals and 8 assists) in 34 apperances. In the last 5 league games, he scored 2 goals and provided 3 assists.

He made his senior international debut back in 2018 and so far, the youngster has played 7 times for Germany and scored 1 goal under the management of World Cup winning coach Joachim Low.

The Bundesliga starlet’s current contract with Leverkusen will expire in 2022 and as per Sky Germany, he is valued at 100 million euros (£88million) but due to coronavirus outbreak, no club would pay that sum to secure his signature.

In January, Man United splashed the cash to sign a top class attacking midfielder in the form of Bruno Fernandes. The former Sporting CP star has been brilliant for us in the CAM role, so, in your view, do we need Kai Havertz?
