Sport1: Bayern Munich faces fierce competition for Kai Havertz

New, comments

Most Bayern Munich fans would rejoice if the club was able to land Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz, but Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool also want the young talent.

Per a report from Sport1, Bayern Munich is going to face stiff competition if it wants to bring Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz to Munich next summer:

According to Sport1’s information, it is far from certain which club Havertz will join next summer if he should transfer at that time. Havertz’s people have not concluded a precontract with either FC Bayern or any other top European club. An oral transfer promise has not been made either. What is clear, though, is that Munich will do everything they can so sign the German national team player. They would have liked to have done so this summer, but [Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi] Völler prevented this transfer.

Sport1 dove deeper into what teams are interested in the 20-year-old Germany international: some of the richest clubs in the world are ready to splurge on Havertz. FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal are all deep-pocketed and looking at Havertz.

Havertz is not interested, however, in a move to Juventus nor Paris Saint-Germain at this point, which narrows the field only slightly. To no one’s surprise, Bayer Lerverkusen is expecting a fee of approximately €100 million as Die Werkself favorably compare Havertz to Atlético Madrid’s Joao Felix (€125 million) and FC Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong (€75 million)

Sport1 thinks Bayern Munich’s chances as “not bad,” but they also note that Havertz has been a fan of FC Barcelona since childhood.
