Bayer Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz admitted that Kai Havertz will leave the Bundesliga side in this summer transfer window but his price tag will be set at no less than €100 million.
The youngster has caught the eye of top European clubs including Real Madrid, Juventus as well as Liverpool.
Coach Bosz said to Algemeen Dagblad : “Kai is 20 years old, but this is already his fourth season in the Bundesliga.
“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.
“We sold his buddy, Julian Brandt, to Borussia Dortmund last summer. Havertz suddenly became even more of an eye-catcher.
“A lot came to him before the winter break. We lost the derby at Koln and three days later also at home to Hertha Berlin. Suddenly the entire stadium whistled him off. He was devastated by that. ‘Why do people hate me?’ Then he’s just another 20-year-old and you explain: ‘They don’t hate you, but this is how it goes’.”
“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!”
