Manchester City have held talks with the representatives of Bayern Leverkusen midfielder, Kai Havertz, according to a report from Bild. The Citizens have followed the player with keen interest.

It is unknown whether the ban placed on Manchester City will have any bearing on securing the service of the player. City have made a move to secure their current squad amid the European ban. They have made moves to renew the contract of star duo, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne. Aside from tying their stars to long term deals they are also looking at strengthening the squad where necessary.

Havertz is considered as a future star for the national team. He is expected to make the squad for the next European championship next summer, and the World Cup 2022 the following summer. Big things are expected from the 20-year-old.

According to some reports, he is a target of several top clubs across Europe. He is allegedly a target of seven clubs.

Aside from Manchester City, the other neighbours in Manchester are also credited with an interest, alongside Juventus, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Barcelona.

The midfielder will not come cheap as it is understood that Bayern Leverkusen will slap a price tag in the region of £100 million for the wonder kid.

Havertz is interested in a summer move away from the Bay Arena. The wonder kid had an amazing season last year, he played every single League game, scoring 17 goals and registering 3 assists from midfield.

He has failed to reproduce the form he showed last year as injury has restricted him this season. Still, he has registered 8 goals and provided 7 assists in 32 appearances across all competitions.

The race to sign the hugely talented player will be tense in the summer, and it will be interesting to see how things pan out among interested parties.
