The 20-year-old Kai Havertz has opened the door to a move away from Bayer Leverkusen, amid keen interest from Man United.

Germany international enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in the Bundesliga in 2018/19, netting 17 goals in 34 matches, and has been a regular in Joachim Low’s Germany squads ever since.

He’s netted two goals in nine matches in Germany’s top flight this campaign and has caught the eye of the Red Devils chiefs.

Manchester United executive vice-chairman of Ed Woodward is told to be confident of bringing the midfielder, with a fee of £80million likely to be wanted to prise him away from the Bayer Leverkusen.

Besides Ole Gunnar Solskjarer’s side, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Barcelona are all thought to have him on their radar, and Kai Havertz has admitted he will be considering his own future next summer, with a transfer possibly on the cards.

‘I think I’ve picked up enough international experience at Leverkusen,’ he told Marca.

‘I know the rhythm of these international matches, and I’m confident that I can go abroad at any moment and play at clubs outside of Germany. ‘For the moment, I want to have a good season. Afterwards, we’ll see.’
