Bayern Munich have shelved plans to move for Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz until next year.

The 20-year-old, who has been hailed as the future of German football, showed no signs of rust after football returned in Germany, inspiring his side to a comfortable win at Werder Bremen.

Despite that star showing, Bayern are happy to bide their time in order to get their man.

Sport BILD report that the German champions have made the decision to not make a move for Havertz until the summer of 2021.

Given that they appear to have prioritised signing Leroy Sané for this summer, it does make financial sense to postpone one of the blockbuster deals.

With Havertz on the back-burner, they will have to hope that nobody aims to swoop in this year and steal him from under their noses.

French outlet Le10Sport’s claim that Real Madrid are now interested in the Germany international doesn’t appear to carry much weight though.

Barcelona and Liverpool have also been linked with his services in the past.

Despite the coronavirus crisis, it is still expected that Leverkusen will seek a fee in the region of €100 million for their prized asset.
