Man Utd and City hold transfer talks over £111m-rated Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz

KAI HAVERTZ has become one of the hottest properties in Europe with Manchester United and City among a wealth of clubs keen on a transfer.

Reports in Germany outline six sides who are holding talks with the Bayer Leverkusen star's entourage over a deal.

Joining the Manchester clubs are Real Madrid, Liverpool and Barcelona as the 20-year-old continues to set Bundesliga alight.

Last season saw Havertz smash 20 goals for Leverkusen as they qualified for the Champions League.

Bild report that the asking price for the attacking midfielder is set at £111million.

Havertz graduated from the BayArena academy in 2016 and has already made 125 appearances for the club despite his tender age.

In addition to the English and Spanish suitors, Bayern Munich are said to be holding a lot of interest in the player.

The German giants have something of an advantage in the race to sign Havertz, according to quotes from the man himself last month.

He declared: "If you want to be a star in Germany, you can’t go wrong with Bayern."

But Sky Sports claimed recently that any departure will not happen until the summer.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to reinforce his squad with a huge warchest available at Old Trafford.

One name floated around for next month is Erling Haaland, the RB Salzburg forward who would also be most likely to actually arrive in the summer - even if a deal is struck in the coming weeks.
