Loads of United fans want £90m target after match-winning display for Bayer Leverkusen

You won’t be surprised to hear Manchester United fans want Bayer Leverkusen sensation Kai Havertz at Old Trafford this summer.

His match-winning performance against Borussia Monchengladbach didn’t go unnoticed after he scored the opening goal within the first 10 minutes and a penalty to sink the home side 3-1.

Some of the tweets below suggest that some United fans want rumoured target Havertz (Manchester Evening News) over Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish — but it remains to be seen if the Red Devils will go for either player in the transfer window, with spending set to be cut due to the coronavirus crisis.

Havertz has also been strongly linked with Liverpool, as per The Mirror, but this is what our fellow supporters said on Twitter:

The Mirror’s report adds that Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are interested too, but Leverkusen are resigned to losing their star man unless they receive £90m for his signature.

He is doing all the right things to keep the big clubs attracted in his signature — scoring four goals in two games since the Bundesliga’s return last week. In Leverkusen’s first game back, against Werder Bremen, Havertz scored two headers.

Former United striker Dimitar Berbatov gave his thoughts on Havertz potentially joining United this summer, telling Betfair: “I would like to see Havertz in the Premier League at some point, but not right now. I think it is a bit too early for him, I want to see him play more games, score more goals and get more confidence and maturity.

“I think he should stay at Leverkusen and develop even more and get that experience which will help him for when the time comes to go somewhere else.”
