Havertz would seemingly have to accept a squad depth role as there's no room in Manchester United's midfield for him.
"What a lot of people don't see, because we watch him every day, is that he's pretty fast. I think he is the best player we have got in Germany at the moment".
Havertz is only 20-years-old and this season he has really kicked on, taking his career tally to 35 Bundesliga goals already. He's very versatile, he can play across the front, he can play in any position.

It could also be that the report above is exaggerated as it doesn't mean that because United are impressed they will make the move for him.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a reputation for signing young, upcoming talent and Havertz certainly fits those criteria.
The Zidane comparisons may stir United into action too.
Just 20, Havertz has emerged as one of the hottest transfer properties in Europe and is being linked with a big move away this summer. Far more than the £50 million The Sun suggested earlier this week.
You only have to listen to the way Leverkusen's assistant coach talks about him to realise how highly they rate him, and the club will not let him leave on the cheap if they can avoid it.
