Bayer Leverkusen forward Kai Havertz is apparently open to signing up with Manchester United, however Dietmar Hamann has actually alerted him off a move to Old Trafford.
Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has urged Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz to pick Chelsea over Manchester United if offered the option.
Germany international Havertz is rumoured to be a target for both Premier League heavyweights this summer, along with Leverkusen’s domestic competitors Bayer Munich.

If there was a player on the market in the past, Manchester United was the first point of contact for years.
” I think that is no longer the case today. When a player like Kai Havertz changes indications and clubs someplace for 5 years, the long-lasting viewpoint is more crucial than taking part in the Champions League next season.
” The player might have to make the decision in the next couple of weeks and can not wait till the season in England, which runs till completion of July or start of August, is over. Point of view is necessary for a player, however Manchester has actually remained in a vacuum for years.
” On the other hand, if I take a look at Chelsea, they have a coach with Frank Lampard who did a great task for the club as a player – and I have the sensation that the Blues are growing once again. For the first time in a very long time, you have a team with which the fans can truly determine.”
Chelsea are likewise thought to be on the brink of finishing a ₤53 m offer for Havertz’s compatriot Timo Werner, who has actually starred for RB Leipzig this season.
