Manchester United could target Kai Havertz if their pursuit of Jadon Sancho fails, reports claim. The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a big-money summer move for Sancho, who is believed to be keen on a transfer to Old Trafford.

Earlier this week, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc revealed the club are planning to keep Sancho, who arrived in an £8m deal from Man City in 2017. He said: “We plan on having Jadon Sancho in our team this season, the decision is final. I think that answers all our questions. “Last summer we adjusted the salary to the performance development of Jadon. In this context, we have extended the contract until 2023.” Zorc’s comments will come as a blow for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has Sancho as his number one transfer target. Now, the Manchester Evening News claim United could turn their attention to Havertz.

Havertz scored 18 goals in all competitions last season and would be a cheaper alternative to Sancho. Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller insists the 21-year-old will not be sold on the cheap. He said: “We know of the interest of a couple of clubs, especially Chelsea, but for us, the situation is quite simple. “He has a two-year contract, if anyone wants him on our terms, fine, otherwise he stays here another year and we are happy. “It won’t be easy, but for a player like him there is no Covid discount.”,
