Manchester United could hijack Chelsea’s offer to sign Kai Havertz if they cannot strike a deal for Jadon Sancho, reports Manchester Evening News.
Kai Havertz is set to move to Stamford Bridge this summer.
But the Bayer Leverkusen star had previously been linked to the Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool.
Sancho is United’s top target this summer, but the club is finding it hard to strike a deal, as Borussia Dortmund continue to play hardball over the £100million-rated winger.
And while United have not given up hope of signing the 20-year-old, if they continue to be frustrated they could turn instead to Havertz.
Leverkusen valued the 21-year-old at around £90m, after he scored 18 goals and provided nine assists in all competitions last season.
