Manchester United fans have urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make a move for Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz in the upcoming transfer window after the German netted a brace against Borussia Monchengladbach.
All eyes are on the Bundesliga after the league restarted last week while supporters await more news on the return of the Premier League.
Havertz is enjoying another stellar season in Germany, taking his tally to ten ten goals in 24 appearances as well as registering five assists. The 20-year-old is a regular in the national team under Joachim Low and is regarded as one of the country’s brightest talents.
Given his form and potential, the youngster has been tipped for a move in the upcoming transfer window, with Bayern Munich believed to be leading the race to sign him. United have been linked with Havertz, although the MEN understands he is not currently a priority target for the club.
United are focused on landing their priority targets Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish and Jude Bellingham. Havertz is likely to attract an enormous fee.
Nevertheless, United fans are keen to see him at Old Trafford following his latest performance.
Former United and Leverkusen star Dimitar Berbatov believes the time isn’t right for the midfielder to move to the Premier League.
He told Betfair: “Havertz needs to get used to the sounds that are being made about him following his two goals on Monday night because teams are going to come after him.
“There’s a lot of talk that Liverpool, Chelsea and other teams are interested in him, so now he needs to be careful, not let that go to his head and stay focused on his game.
“He has enough quality and if he continues the way he is going teams will still be there, they won’t go away.
“All eyes are on the Bundesliga at the moment and when you score goals and play good football it is no surprise that teams like Liverpool want you.
“I would like to see Havertz in the Premier League at some point, but not right now. I think it is a bit too early for him, I want to see him play more games, score more goals and get more confidence and maturity.”
