Even though the hype around the 20-year-old Kai Havertz has slightly died down in recent times, Bild have come out with new information that states the young talent might be making a big transfer in 2020.
Among his potential destinations are Real Madrid.
The same German outlet emphasises that Bayern Munich are in for the Bundesliga prodigy but their advances were rejected as Havertz wanted to stay put at Bayer Leverkusen for the 2018/19 season. But a departure in 2020 is becoming a real possibility and they have also revealed some of the clubs the youngster could potentially move to.

Real Madrid were mentioned alongside Bayern Munich and Barcelona, but looking at Los Blancos’ current squad and the crop of talent they have already at the club, going for Havertz wouldn’t be in their best interests.
There’s no denying that Havertz is a brilliant talent. At the age of 20, he already looks like someone who could turn into a superstar in the not so distant future.
But even with all that sublime skill and undeniable potential, Real already have many of their own. In fact, when we take a look at their whole squad, including their loanees, we get a pretty impressive list.
The likes of Vinicius Junior, Takefusa Kubo, Dani Ceballos, Rodrygo and Marco Asensio are just some of the future stars that look promising and able to be the foundation of the Galacticos’ future.
Not to mention that Havertz, if he was truly on the market, would not go for cheap. Bayer Leverkusen have already rejected advances before, slapping an incredible €100m (£89m) price tag on the youngster according to a report published last month.
It’s also fair to presume that if Havertz continues developing, that sum could rise in the near future.
There’s no doubt that the 20-year-old is on the right path to becoming a big name in the footballing world but, with so many young talents of their own, many of whom are also midfielders, maybe it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to simply trust the process and the youth they already have at their disposal instead of splashing the cash once again.
Maybe it does sound a touch bizarre but Real Madrid actually don’t seem to need Havertz, regardless of his immense quality.
