Man Utd prepared to sign £85million playmaker in January – Face competition

Kai Havertz Bayer Leverkusen

Manchester United have won back to back games and will need to continue the winning run in order to finish in the top four this season.

As far as the transfers are concerned, the Red Devils should splash the cash to secure key offensive signings in the winter transfer window after letting Lukaku and Sanchez leave in the summer.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Man Utd are prepared to sign a highly rated German playmaker in January.

According to an exclusive report recently covered by Mirror Sport, Ed Woodward has given the green light for Man Utd to secure the signings of Muller and Havertz in January. Our focus is on the Bayer Leverkusen star.

The British outlet have mentioned that top European clubs are interested in hiring the services of the 20-year-old attacker, who is valued at £85million by the Bundesliga club and United believe that he is worth it.

The Kaiser can play anywhere in the attacking third but naturally, he is a central attacking midfielder, who has the ability to find the killer final ball and strike the ball from distance. At Old Trafford, United do not have a proven quality CAM.

Last season, the youngster featured in 34 league games and directly contributed in 21 goals (17 goals and 4 assists). In the current campaign, so far, he has played 8 Bundesliga games, scored 2 goals and provided 1 assist.

As far as his international career is concerned, Havertz made his debut for the senior side last year and so far, he has made 7 appearances for the four-time World Cup winners under the management of Joachim Low. He netted first goal for the country earlier this month in a friendly contest against South American giants Argentina.

As per Mirror Sport, Havertz ticks all the boxes for Man United. In your view, should Woodward splash £85million to secure his signing in January?


  1. Yes to Havertz but NO to Muller. Havertz is a quality young player who will only get better and better as he matures, Muller is finished as a quality player, why else would Bayern be willing to sell? After all they just let Robben and Ribery go and how old was Lahm? If you are still up to the job Bayern will trust you, Muller is no longer up to the job

  2. Yes, we need Havertz. At present we don’t have a midfield at all. Pogba is injured and even when he does grace us with his presence, he often does not perform. As for McTomcat, Pereira, Mata, Lingard,Fred, Dalot or Matic – they are probably the most sorry misfits in the English Premier League. Perhaps they could play for San Marino or The Faroe Islands. Complete waste of money and kit.
