As per the Express, the Bundesliga side value their prized asset and the ‘Prince of German football’ at £83m, which honestly isn’t a surprising figure for a player who is the youngest ever to reach 50 and 100 appearances in the German top-flight.
Havertz has bagged 10 goals and registered 8 assists in 34 appearances across all competitions this season, the ace is primarily used as a central attacking midfielder or right winger.
The ace has also been deployed as a centre-forward and in a more traditional central midfield role, this would make him a perfect option for the Red Devils and the Blues.
