Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz has been linked with Manchester United in recent months. He won’t come cheap but it’s good to hear the club are thinking ahead with the player unlikely to move in January.
According to The Athletic, the Germany international was discussed by Man Utd chiefs once again this month, despite being put off trying to sign him in the summer.
The report adds that the Red Devils would prefer to wait until the summer, firstly because of his huge asking price by Leverkusen.
Then there’s a concerning second reason — due to Havertz’ dip in form this season.
Havertz has scored three goals in 21 games across all competitions compared to an impressive 20 in 42 matches last season.
United are currently closely linked to Bruno Fernandes, as per Sky Sports, and it remains to be seen if they’ll still be keen to sign Havertz in summer if that deal goes through for the Sporting ace.
Fans would like to see both players brought in between now and the summer.
But with United’s current owners, the Glazers, we just know their penny-pinching will continue.
