Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Convinced Manchester United To Sign Kai Havertz

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pushing the Manchester United board to sign Kai Havertz this summer, according to reports.

 

Havertz is hot property in the transfer market and has been in scintillating form for Bayer Leverkusen since the Bundesliga resumed action last month.

Leverkusen have slapped a £90million asking price on their coveted star and Sunday World claim United made contact with the German club weeks ago to sign Havertz. United are facing financial difficulties due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Solskjaer is convinced they can lure Havertz to Manchester this summer.

Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Liverpool have been linked with Havertz, but Solskjaer believes United’s spending power will be enough to fend off competition from top clubs. United are becoming more and more impressed with Havertz, who has scored five times in his last four appearances for Leverkusen.

Havertz has quickly become a crucial target for United, in the same way Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho is for the Red Devils.

Solskjaer is happy with his options up front, but understands he must add serious quality to his squad if United are to become Premier League title challengers.

Havertz is believed to be open to a move to the Premier League when the next transfer window opens, seeing England as a ‘realistic’ destination for him.

But the German international’s priority is to remain a nailed on starter, as he aims to be selected in his country’s 2021 European Championships squad next summer

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
