Manchester United appear to have been handed a transfer boost as Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz admits he’s going to hold discussions over his future.
The exciting young Germany international has been linked with a number of top clubs, such as Real Madrid (as per Marca), and he admits he is taking advice from his national team manager Joachim Low.
The Red Devils are said to be approaching the transfer market with a new plan in mind, to sign younger players with great ability and attitude.
And it seems like Havertz is the real deal.
Havertz is seen as the best young player in the Bundesliga, along with fellow Manchester United transfer target Jadon Sancho, the former Man City youngster who made the German top-flight his home following a shock switch to Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

The 20-year-old Leverkusen star said, as quoted by The Sun: “I listen to many people but in the end it will be my decision.
“I will embrace any advice Low will give me because he has a lot of experience — it wouldn’t be smart to not listen to him.”
Havertz has been linked with United for around £90m, as per The Express, and he would undoubtedly improve Solskjaer’s midfield.
This a player who could add more creativity to United’s midfield by forming better chemistry in the final third. United’s attackers need a better player than Jesse Lingard to unlock defences as the England international continues to struggle in the team.
It would be a big surprise if Havertz stayed at Leverkusen beyond next summer.
