Manchester United hopes of getting Bayer Leverkusen youngster Kai Havertz has been boosted as Peter Bosz revealed that the player could decide to leave the German Bundesliga sooner than expected.

The Bayer Leverkusen manager told Germany media publication Bild that the 20-year-old attacking midfielder could be heading to a new club in the nearest future.

Bosz, who has been tutoring the player for four years, claimed that he would love to have the player around for many more seasons but he has no power to change the youngster’s decision.

“Of course I would like to keep him, just as I would have liked to keep Julian Brandt, for example…. But it is like this, at the end the player himself must feel when he is ready for the next step. Nobody can decide that for him.”

This will come as good news to United manager who truly needs a goalscoring midfielder at the middle of the park following Pogba’s lack of goalscoring abilities.

Havertz has scored 31 goals for Leverkusen since his first-team debut in 2015 and he will definitely be a good addition to the Old Trafford outfit.

Liverpool are also said to be keeping close eye on the Germany international hoping to launch a bid for his services as soon as he’s available.
