According to a recent report by the Daily Star, Manchester United are lining up an £80m bid to acquire the services of Kai Havertz from Bayer 04 Leverkusen. The same source has also claimed that the Bundesliga rising star is Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s number one transfer target and the Red Devils are prepared to send a few scouts to the BayArena to catch the youngster in action against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League tonight.
Havertz’ Impressive Start To This Campaign
Ed Woodward is also confident about pulling off a move as he believes that he can make an offer that Leverkusen cannot refuse next summer (via the Daily Star). Havertz has made a positive start to this campaign after putting in a few goal-scoring displays for Leverkusen so far.
The Aachen-born prospect has featured in 14 matches for Peter Bosz’s side this term, scoring three goals and providing one assist on all fronts. He has taken an average of 1.7 shots and has played 2.4 key passes per game in the German top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Havertz has also represented Germany at various youth ranks and is currently an exciting prospect for his nation’s senior team. He has earned seven international caps thus far, scoring one goal in the process.
What Will The German International Add To Solskjaer’s Side?
Havertz is one of the quickest players in the Bundesliga and can make some penetrative dribbles with the ball down the wide areas. He is also exceptional when linking up play with others around him and has the vision to pick out a defence-splitting pass in the final third. However, the German prospect needs to work on improving his productivity if he wants to be a success story in English football.
Is Havertz The Right Choice For Man United?
Man United will undeniably benefit from securing the signature of a playmaker of Havertz’s ilk as they currently lack creativity from midfield. Both Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard have been underwhelming with their performances for the Red Devils this season. Furthermore, losing Pogba to injury has also not helped Solskjaer’s cause at Old Trafford.
Hence, recruiting a quality young playmaker like Havertz will be a massive coup for them in the long-run. However, as far as the player is concerned, he is better off moving to a club with Champions League ambitions rather than settle for Premier League mediocrity.
