Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz admits Havertz might leave the club in the summer but won’t be sold for anything less than €100 million.

Kai Havertz is wanted by some of Europe’s top teams and his coach accepts that he will likely move on this summer.

The attacking midfielder has attracted interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Juventus after becoming a top prospect at Leverkusen.

Despite being only 20, Havertz has already made 122 league appearances and 139 in total since making his debut at 16 years of age.

As his reputation continues to grow, Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz belives Havetz might leave in the summer but would command a very high transfer fee in the range of €100 million or more.

“Kai is 20 years old, but this is already his fourth season in the Bundesliga,” he told Algemeen Dagblad.

“That says a lot. Everyone in Germany sees him as a child prodigy. He is from Aachen, has been here since he was eight. Nice boy to work with. Intelligent. He also plays the piano.”

“During the winter break, we showed images that he did not reach the box enough. Now he does that more often. His share of goals and assists has skyrocketed. 

“He can’t be held on to next summer. That will be a transfer of €100 million.

“What am I saying? More than 100 million!”

Havertz continues to impress for Leverkusen this season, with six goals and five assists in 22 league appearamces.
