Havertz is wanted by a host of teams around Europe, including United, Liverpool and Real Madrid, and is expected to fetch a hefty transfer fee.

The Bundesliga side want at least £70m for the attacking midfielder, meaning the Blues will have to continue spending big in order to sign him.

They will face competition from elsewhere, however, as Madrid have reportedly submitted a bid already.

Madrid reportedly tabled a bid of £71.1m, but Leverkusen want him to stay.
