Being contested by Chelsea for the most promising star in the Bundesliga, MU quickly moved to another target with a softer price, which is the defender named “New Ramos” of La Liga.
Kai Havertz, the 20-year-old midfielder is sought-after by many clubs
Recently, Chelsea jumped into the race to sign the young talent of the Bundesliga, Kai Havertz. The 20-year-old midfielder is considered the “star” of German football and he is the target of many big players in Europe such as Liverpool, Real Madrid or Man United.
Man United used to have a great advantage and seemed to soon get Leverkusen’s wing star signature, with many other big teams involved, “Reds” will face significant difficulties. “The Blues” want to add more creativity to their squad and despite spending £ 33m on Hakim Ziyech from Ajax, coach Frank Lampard wants more than that at Chelsea.
According to The Athletic, Chelsea will put Kai Havertz on the top shopping list this summer transfer window. Kai Havertz has been praised by German football director Leverkusen Rudi Voeller as the “one-hundred-year-old” star of German football and it is easy to understand why Chelsea “crave” the midfielder in 1999.
Although only 21 years old, Kai Havertz has 7 caps for the German national team. At club level, the young talent of 1m89 has become an integral element of Bayer Leverkusen with 6 goals and 5 assists in the Bundesliga this season. Reportedly, the price that the German team offers for its “jewel” is not less than 70 million pounds, a figure that makes MU hesitated.
In the latest development, the Old Trafford team has turned to another young talent with a softer price. Specifically, MU is said to have contacted the representative of the center-back playing Real Valladolid, Mohammed Salisu. The young star born in 1999 was dubbed the “new Ramos” in La Liga with the ability to defend and participate in impressive attacks.
Having launched La Liga in August 2019, Salisu has quickly become one of the irreplaceable players at Real Valladolid. The AS newspaper also revealed that MU was the first team to ask to recruit this Ghanaian star. With a height of 1m91 and outstanding strength in play, the center-back of Valladolid is one of the biggest findings in La Liga this season.
MU itself will get a big “bargain” when the fee to release Mohammed Salisu’s contract is only 11 million pounds. Besides, the English team also has an advantage when the representative of the center-back is the father of midfielder Juan Mata. However, the red half of Manchester still needs to act faster before the attention from many other teams in La Liga like Real Madrid, Valencia or Atletico Madrid for the “new Ramos“.
Miss Coutinho, Chelsea will switch to Kai Havertz
Coach Lampard will almost certainly have to supplement the attack to prepare for the 2020/21 season when the trio of Pedro, Willian and Giroud will finish the contract at the end of the 2019/20 season. The former England midfielder prioritizes a versatile attacking player like Philippe Coutinho.
This season, Kai Havertz owns 6 goals and 5 ants at the Bundesliga playground. However, to own “the new Ramos” is not easy because this player is simply being pursued by many big teams. Not only that, but Bayer Leverkusen also shouted £ 80 million for this player.
Recently, when asked about the future, Kai Havertz told Sport Bild: “Bayer Leverkusen is a great club. However, I am ready to take a big step forward. I like challenges. Everything will be clear in the next few months “.
