According to a recent report by El Desmarque (translated by the Daily Star), Real Madrid are in advanced talks with Bayer 04 Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz over a potential move to bring him to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. The same source has also claimed that the German prospect will prefer a move to the Galacticos as he would be guaranteed more playing time in Zinedine Zidane’s first-team.
It is no secret that besides Toni Kroos, Los Blancos has lacked a creative presence in their midfield with James Rodriguez struggling to prove his worth at the Spanish capital while Luka Modric is currently in the twilight years of his playing career. Thus, Zidane could use a player of Havertz’s potential as he would add some much-needed youthful exuberance, dynamism and creativity to the Galacticos squad.
Havertz’s Impressive Form In The Bundesliga This Season
Havertz has made a bright start to this campaign after scoring three goals and grabbing one assist in 15 appearances for Leverkusen this term on all fronts. He is an exceptional talent but needs to add more consistency to his game if he wants to succeed at the highest level. The German rising star has averaged 1.7 shots, 2.4 key passes and 2.1 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga this season (stats via whoscored).
The 20-year-old has also represented Germany in seven international matches and has netted one goal for his country thus far.
What Will The German Starlet Add To Zidane’s Side?
Havertz has blistering pace which allows him to make some dangerous runs with the ball in the final third. He excels when interchanging passes with others around him and has the vision to unlock a rigid defence when a match is tightly contested. However, the German starlet needs to add more goals and assists to his game if he wants to become a household name in European football.
Zidane should focus on adding some fresh faces to his ageing first-team if he wants to win more trophies at the Bernabeu in the coming years. The French head coach needs to cut some of the deadwood from his squad when the transfer window reopens in January so that he can rebuild a strong squad capable of winning more silverware in the future.
Havertz could become a central part of the next generation of Galacticos if he decides to join Zidane’s project in Madrid. The German playmaker has all the attributes to become a fan favourite in the La Liga, so it makes a lot of sense for Zidane to go all out in pursuit of his services.
