Kai Havertz Bayer Leverkusen

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.

Transfer: Man Utd pressing to agree signing of £245,000-a-week star – Face competition

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.
