Manchester United are interested in a deal to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz, according to a report in England.

The Daily Star, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in a deal to sign one of Bundesliga’s most exciting prospects.

The same article states that Manchester United vice chairman Ed Woodward is confident the Red Devils can sign the Bayer Leverkusen midfielder.

According to the same story, the 20-time English champions can expect to face competition from FC Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich.
