Kai Havertz would not address the transfer speculation surrounding his future, insisting his focus right now is only Bayer Leverkusen.

Kai Havertz was the star of the show, as Bayer Leverkusen beat Bundesliga top three rivals Borussia Monchengladbach.

The young German midfielder scored twice as his side ran out three-one winners.

His performance though only served to heighten speculation surrounding his future.

However, the player who is only 20, seems wise beyond his years.

The rumored target for several of Europe’s elite simply refuses to be drawn, insisting his focus is the win and Leverkusen.

According to Goal, he said:

“I do not like to say, of course, that there is a lot of speculation.” 

“I’m concentrating on this season and will see what happens afterwards.” 

“I am very grateful to Leverkusen and I don’t want to mess it up in any way.” 

“We’re happy about the win. We put it on ourselves to win here and we did that.” 

“We had to really give everything today and I think we deserved to win in the end.” 

The list of clubs that have Havertz on their most wanted list is almost endless. Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Juventus, Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Bayern Munich.

The Bavarians are thought to be the favorites.
