According to Sport Bild, Bayer Leverkusen talent Kai Havertz is looking to make up his mind soon. Per the report, the German wants to make a decision on his future and have it out of the way after this summer.

Due to the coronavirus fallout, many are expecting clubs to be frugal this transfer window. This will be in direct conflict with Leverkusen's demands for €100 million minimum for Havertz’s services.

Commentary from Bayern’s brass has indicated an unlikelihood that the club would be able fund both a transfer for Leroy Sané of Manchester City and Havertz as much as they would like both of the talented weapons.

Now reports out of England (The Sun) claim Manchester United is preparing just a £50 million opening bid for Kai Havertz. If the market is so depressed, that could make signing the pair an option for Bayern Munich.

Sport Bild concludes with a vague quote: “According to Sport Bild’s information, Havertz wants to make a decision this summer. Also for the event that he does not transfer until 2021.” Does that suggests he wants to make a decision this summer, even if the transfer is postponed until 2021. Will he stay at Bayer? Will he stay in Germany? It appears we might know this summer.
