Rudi Voller gives Manchester United hope on Kai Havertz

Speaking to Sky Sports (h/t Mirror), Bayern Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller has admitted that the club only retains a small hope of keeping Manchester United target Kai Havertz this summer.

This should come as good news for Manchester United, who have been tracking the gifted 20-year-old.

He will not come cheap with Leverkusen set to demand a high fee. In spite of this, the Germans are resigned to losing the wonderkid.

Havertz has been in excellent form since the Bundesliga restarted last month. He has scored five goals in the last four games, taking his tally to 15 goals in 38 games. He is also capable of creating goals and has provided eight assists so far. (h/t Transfermarkt)

“I’m honest, I always have such a small hope that we can and will keep him here for another year.”

Voller believes Havertz is already world-class and will improve further in the future.

Havertz is capable of playing a variety of attacking positions and will be an excellent addition to the United squad. He can also play as a centre-forward, a position we lack options in.

A number of clubs including Liverpool and Bayern Munich have also been linked to the youngster. The main threat is likely to come from Chelsea who has earned over £100million in sales and is yet to spend it.

Furthermore, Frank Lampard is keen to reinforce his squad after having put his faith in youth.

The opportunity to play in the Champions League could play a role in where Havertz ends up. United have an excellent chance of making the competition next season.

A return to the top table will ensure we can attract the best talents as we continue the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rebuild.
