Kai Havertz TEAMtalk

Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz is open to a move to the Premier League at the end of the season, according to a report.

Havertz’ status as one of Europe’s top young talents has skyrocketed with his form since the Bundesliga’s resumption last month.

The 20-year-old has scored five goals since the return, prompting further links about an exciting Premier League move.

United reportedly hold a keen interest, with the Red Devils not planning on cutting their spending unlike most in Europe.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Havertz is open to moving to the English top flight, a prospect he views as “very realistic”.

The German is enjoying his time at Leverkusen and is reportedly hugely grateful for the first-team role he has earned.

However, he has lofty ambitions and is open to seeking a potentially life-changing move, even at his tender age.

Chelsea have also been linked with a move, with Blues boss Frank Lampard reportedly ordering an £80million bid to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

Havertz broke through to Leverkusen’s first team in 2016 and has been a key part of the side ever since.

His recent form has particularly caught the eye, with the Bundesliga the only European league back in action to date.

 

HAVERTZ ONE OF MANY YOUNG BUNDESLIGA STARS

Havertz is not the only impressive youngster in the Bundesliga this term.

Erling Braut Haaland moved to Borussia Dortmund in January and has netted 13 goals in 14 games for the club.

Fellow Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, meanwhile, shrugged off injury with a hat-trick in his most recent game.

Elsewhere, Schalke winger Rabbi Matondo has also impressed and is reportedly a target for United.

Reports say Matondo, who joined from Manchester City, has a €60million release clause in his contract.
