Manchester United reportedly described Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz as a possible alternative to Jadon Sancho.
The Germany International has recorded six goals and five assists in the 22 appearances of the Bundesliga and is under contract at Leverkusen until 2022.
According to, Solskjaer’s side is keeping a close eye on Havertz’s developments, but given the current crisis, Leverkusen is not budging on their rates.
The report argues that the Bundesliga outfit plans to stand firm on its £90 m valuation of the 20-year-old, who has also been linked to Liverpool and Chelsea in recent weeks.
On the other hand, Sancho is said to be the number one goal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer going into the summer transfer window. Indeed, Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward acknowledged that large-money movements are unlikely to take place in the aftermath of the pandemic, suggesting that the Red Devils will have to try alternatives to the $100 m Sancho valued.
However, the financial consequences of the coronavirus outbreak could delay United plans to sign the Borussia Dortmund forward.
