Therefore, mega-clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea started showing interests in the young German sensation. Moreover, the versatility he will provide as he can play several positions ahead makes him attractive in front of all the clubs in Europe.

Manchester United desperately looking for someone who can play on the right-wing and Havertz has the capability of playing there, however, his primary position is as an attacking midfielder, with that he can also be deputed as a backup for Bruno Fernandes.

But at the same time, Manchester United is also linked with Donny Van De Beek, who is proving to be much cheaper. This gives an advantage to Chelsea in this transfer saga.

Since Havertz can play at the centre of the field and on the right-wing too, it gives a huge scope to Lampard to make rotations in the squad, since all of them in this department are young.
