Reports are flooding through that Man Utd scouts will be watching Kai Havertz take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League tonight.
And Havertz recently added further fuel to the fire that he is willing to leave Germany next summer.
The Manchester United target, who is being linked with us this week by the Daily Star, has built quite the reputation for himself in Germany and it’s no wonder now that he’s seen as one of Europe’s most exciting prospects.
Havertz scored 20 goals in total last season — an extraordinary tally for a midfield player, and that is enough to suggest he’d make a big difference to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
“I think I’ve picked up enough international experience at Leverkusen,” he told Spanish publication Marca last month.
“I know the rhythm of these international matches and I’m confident that I can go abroad at any moment and play at clubs outside Germany.
“For the moment, I want to have a good season. Afterwards, we’ll see.”
We need a player capable of pulling strings for us in midfield, much in the mould Havertz does for Leverkusen.
But the Bundesliga club will demand a huge transfer fee and Solskjaer will need to be sure he directly fits in the tactical setup right now.
Signing a player like Havertz would certain cushion the blow of losing a player like Paul Pogba which seems inevitable right now.
