Kai Havertz has hit the footballing headlines recently after a succession of seriously impressive performances for German side Bayer Leverkusen.
Havertz has played both league games for Bayer Leverkusen since the resumption of the Bundesliga, netting twice in as many weeks. His most recent contribution came in helping his side to a 3-1 domestic victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.
He has been linked with moves to English title favourites, Liverpool, Barcelona as well as German rivals, Bayern Munich.
There have also been rumours recently that Manchester United have entered the race for Havertz, the club are thought to be interested in signing the 20-year-old attacker.
Bayern Leverkusen have previously stated that they’re unwilling to enter into negotiations for their German wonderkid for a sum less than €100mil and Havertz has now addressed these rumours.
According to Manchester Evening News, Havertz has spoken about the transfer speculation surrounding him by reiterating that he fully focused on finishing the season with Bayern Leverkusen and is not distracted by the reports linking him to United.
Havertz spoke to Sky Sports Germany, as quoted by MEN, and said: ”I do not like to say, of course, that there is a lot of speculation. I’m concentrating on this season and will see what happens afterwards.”
He added: “I am very grateful to Leverkusen and I don’t want to mess it up in any way.”
At this stage, it is unclear which club has serious intentions to land Havertz and which ones are merely assessing their options. But one thing is certain, Havertz is set to become the future of Germany football, does a move away from their top domestic league seem possible? Not really.
