Bayern Munich hierarchy reportedly has doubts about paying a huge fee for Bayer Leverkusen star.
Kai Havertz has been heavily linked with Bayern Munich in the last couple of seasons. Ever since he started shining for Bayer Leverkusen, he has been linked with a move to Bavaria. The defending Bundesliga champions have also spoken glowingly about the 20-year-old attacking midfielder.
However, the recent reports in Germany suggest that Havertz’s move to Bayern may be in jeopardy. According to Sport1, the Bayern hierarchy is skeptical about making a move for Havertz in the summer transfer window.
As per this report, Hansi Flick meanwhile will welcome a transfer for Havertz if he gets the job permanently in summer. Sport1 also insists that Bayer Leverkusen wants a fee close to €130 million for Havertz in summer.
Leverkusen will be hoping for a bidding war for Havertz as top European clubs are interested in the players. Liverpool has been heavily linked with a move for Havertz, while both Spanish giants have also been reportedly monitoring the progress of the 20-year-old midfielder.

Havertz is going through a tough season at Leverkusen after an outstanding 2018/19 campaign. He has not been prolific in the final third as he was last season, but young players are bound to inconsistent. It will be interesting to see how Havertz comes out of this tough phase and starts being productive in the final third.
Thomas Muller‘s resurgence may force Bayern to wait for an attacking midfielder for one more season. He has been created chances for fun under Flick, and recently, started scoring goals consistently. Rekordmeister may look to strengthen their attack and add two wingers to the squad instead of going big for an attacking midfielder.
Earlier this week, Michael Ballack admitted that Havertz should be patient regarding a big move away from Bayer Leverkusen. In my opinion, Bayern should be doing everything to get Havertz in their squad next season. At times you have to break the bank when a talent such as Havertz is available in the market.

Die Roten missed out on Leroy Sane last time, which turned out to be a big mistake considering the injury issues Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery faced last season. They have been proactive in terms of planning for the future ever since by already finding the long term replacement of Manuel Neuer. The Bavarians will have to adopt the same approach when they think about a replacement for Muller.
