Manchester United are ‘very interested’ in Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz, according to reports in Germany.
The 20-year-old was linked with United at the end of October with the Daily Mirror saying that Man Utd signing him ahead of Europe’s leading clubs ‘would be a major coup’.
While United ‘believe it’s worth the investment’ as he ‘completely fits their identi-kit in age, talent, potential – and the X-factor ingredient [they] are looking for from future signings’.
Then in November, the Daily Star said that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘has made Havertz his No.1 target’ but that executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will ‘wait until next summer to make his move’.
However, the report specifically states: ‘Especially Manchester United are very interested.’
Sport Bild continue by saying that Bayern Munich’s €90m estimated cost to bring Havertz to the Allianz Arena now seems a little short.
