Kai Havertz has scored three goals for the Blues since joining from German club Bayer Leverkusen this summer.

According to The Athletic via Metro, Premier League rivals Manchester United had eyes on Havertz when he was at Bayer Leverkusen and first made contact with the German club back in January.

The Red Devils decided not to follow up with an offer after Bayer Leverkusen quoted a fee of £90million for Havertz, giving Chelsea a free run at the German playmaker.

Chelsea then signed Havertz after agreeing an initial £72m deal for the midfielder with Bayer Leverkusen, though the transfer could rise by a further £18m if various add-ons and clauses are triggered.
