Bayern Munich and Barcelona favourites to sign Kai Havertz

Seven clubs have held talks with the entourage of Kai Havertz with the Bayer Leverkusen midfielder set to decide on his future in the coming weeks, according to SportBild.

Bayern Munich and Barcelona are amongst the favourites to sign Havertz, with Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid also interested.

Bayer Leverkusen are holding out for a fee close to €130 million with the Bundesliga club open to receiving the transfer fee in different payment incentives.

The Bundesliga club rejected a €90m fee from Bayern Munich last summer whilst the reigning champions are current favourites alongside Barcelona to sign the Germany international.

Havertz is a fan of the playing style of former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino which could persuade him to join Bayern Munich, if the Argentine becomes Bayern coach.
