Kai Havertz has been subject to a lot of media speculations this summer with a number of the best clubs of the world fighting among themselves to acquire his services. Manchester United are also not far behind as the Red Devils have joined the race to rope in the Bayer Leverkusen man in their team.
However, Michael Ballack has now urged the youngster to stay put at the Bundesliga team and continue his progress in Germany. Metro reports that the ex-Bayern star has recently stated to SportBild in an interview, “Players with his quality are in demand everywhere. But I think he’s in good hands in Leverkusen.
He added, “Leverkusen also offer a cautious environment, and as a player you can make mistakes without being the focus of criticism. You should appreciate that. Of course a player like Kai Havertz has to play in the Champions League, so it would be important for Leverkusen to qualify for it.”
Do Manchester United need him?
Ole Gunnar Solskjær has had a couple of decent transfer windows securing the signatures of some utility players. While Daniel James, Maguire and Wan-Bissaka joined in the summer, Bruno Fernandes and Ighalo came into the club last January. However, it can be fairly said that the squad is far from a finished product with the future of Paul Pogba hanging on the line.
Juan Mata is already 32, and it does not seem like the manager would be able to bank upon him for a consistent period. Therefore, even though Fernandes has done a brilliant job in his short spell for the club, the fact remains that the Mancunians would still require some reinforcements at the attacking-midfield position. In that regard, Havertz is one of the best names out there.
Why it can be bad news for United?
Havertz is one of the best talents in the current market, and it is not without reason that managers such as Jürgen Klopp are lining up for his services. The 20-year-old is a technically gifted man, and his composed nature allows him to dribble past defenders with ease. At such a tender age, the German is one of the first names on the team-sheet for his club. His performances on the field have even made Germany manager Joachim Low give the youngster a chance for the national side.
If Havertz does decide to take the advice of the German legend, United will lose the chance to sign one of the most sought after names of world football at the moment and look at other alternatives, in a time where options are hard to come by. Irrespective of the recent comments of Ballack, Ed Woodward must try to cut a deal with the Bundesliga side for this future star.
