Manchester United have been told that Kai Havertz will be allowed to leave this summer, amid reports they are now seeking a possible deal.
It is no secret in the media that Chelsea are very keen to try and secure a transfer deal for Havertz and have been backed to complete a deal for the German star for months now.
However, it has been claimed that both Bayer Leverkusen and the Chelsea boards cannot agree on the Havertz fee, and that is holding up the possible £70 million signing of a player that netted 18-goals last season.
However, recent reports on the TalkSport website have suggested that Manchester United are now ready to swoop in and offer the German a move to Old Trafford, if they miss out on top transfer target Jadon Sancho.
It is no secret in the media that United are keen to wrap up a deal for Sancho, but with Dortmund keen to keep hold, there has been no movement on a possible deal, meaning that other targets need to be lined up.
now, Speaking to German magazine Kicker, Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller has opened up and admitted that they are willing to let Havertz leave the club this summer, but only if certain conditions are met.
He said: “No decision has been made yet.
“I’d like to repeat myself by emphasising that we’re talking about a wonderful footballer.
“There is nothing new in this regard.
“We have a clear and mutual agreement with him and his representatives that he can only leave if certain requirements are met. Otherwise he will stay.”
Havertz is a brilliantly gifted star and if United hijack a possible deal ahead of Chelsea, the Blues will be fuming.
