Man United have turned to Bayer Leverkusen prodigy Kai Havertz as they look to bolster their attack for the upcoming season.
The youngster established himself as one of the top prospects in European football soon after making his debut. Over the course of the current season, Havertz has managed to convert 15 goals and has assisted a further 8 goals.
There’s no doubt that the German is up there with Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Halaand as one of the top youngsters in the Bundesliga.
Which is why it comes as no surprise that the midfielder has managed to attract interest from the elites of Europe.
According to Christian Falk, United are amongst Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Liverpool in the race to lure the German international away from the Bayer Arena.

According to Falk, there’s a possibility that one of these clubs may end up signing the Leverkusen starlet in 2020 or 2021.
On the other hand, the Havertz is now under the dilemma of weighing up his options to choose the best destination, and according to Manchester Evening News, the 20-year-old is open to a move to Old Trafford.
The report goes on to say that the attacking midfielder views the Premier League as a realistic option, and could make a move at the end of this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be in pursuit of attacking options and the Bundesliga star’s versatility to play as an attacking midfielder and as a right winger may be a contributing factor to United’s strong interest.
However, with very strong competitors to fend off, it is too soon to say if the Red Devils have a good chance of landing their man.
