Real Madrid bid £71m for Bayer Leverkusen’s Havertz, but would allow midfielder to stay in Germany next season’

Real Madrid have offered Bayer Leverkusen £71million (80m euros) for star Kai Havertz and are willing to let him stay in the Bundesliga for another season, according to reports in Germany.
The 20-year-old is expected to leave Leverkusen at the end of the campaign after an outstanding season in which he has scored 15 goals and recorded eight assists.
That record includes five goals in four appearances for the Germany international – who is also being tracked by Bayern Munich – since the return of the Bundesliga last month.But BILD claim that Madrid are looking to beat the ‘long list’ of competitors for Havertz’s signature by offering to let him stay in the Bundesliga until 2021.
The report claims that such an agreement could be advantageous for both clubs, with Leverkusen able to reinvest the money in the upcoming transfer window while Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane would secure one of the best midfield talents in Europe.
The German outlet also states Havertz is striving to make a decision regarding his future this summer, even though Bayern would reportedly prefer to make their move for him next season
The report emerges a day after Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes admitted Havertz could go anywhere in the transfer window.
‘We don’t know yet what will happen to Kai,’ Rolfes told Marca.
‘We know that all the greats from Germany and Europe are after him and that he has the ability to play anywhere.
‘He is a fantastic player and, for many years, Bayern has always been behind the young talents of Germany.
‘But we have to wait, there are many factors that can have an influence. His future is not yet decided at all.
‘I can only say that I love to see him play, especially for as long as possible in the Leverkusen shirt. I have no preferences when it comes to other teams.
‘He will be one of the great dominant players of the next 10 years.’
