MANCHESTER UNITED target Kai Havertz has revealed he is eyeing a Bundesliga exit next summer.
But the Bayer Leverkusen star also admits he could remain in Germany to join champions Bayern Munich instead.
Havertz told Marca: “They’re probably the biggest club in Germany and there are many players that were very successful at a young age that went there.
“Therefore I get linked with Bayern but we’ll see what happens. There are players that want to stay close to their family and others say, ‘I want to live in another country’.
“There’s something clear. If you want to be a star in Germany, you can’t go wrong with Bayern.
“I think I’ve picked up enough international experience at Leverkusen. I know the rhythm of these international matches and I’m confident I can go abroad at any moment and play at clubs outside of Germany.
“For the moment I want to have a good season. Afterwards, we’ll see.”
UNITED are set to be rebuffed in any bid to land Aston Villa's John McGinn – despite being given the backing of Sir Alex Ferguson.
That is according to the Birmingham Mail, who say Ole Gunnar Solskjaerretains an interest in the 25-year-old Scottish midfielder.
Old Trafford chiefs are said to have been impressed with McGinn and how he helped Dean Smith's side to promotion last season.
But it is believed that Villa will do everything to keep their man after placing a £50million price tag on his head.
DAVID MOYES believes he was right to attempt big changes at Manchester United despite failing to bring success back to Old Trafford.
The Scot replaced Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 but lasted less than a year in the job and has since been strongly criticised by Rio Ferdinand.
In response, Moyes said: “I look at it in many ways. They're very experienced players, they will have seen how good managers work so they'll see it differently – but I had to put my stamp on Manchester United.
“The big thing about Manchester United… Manchester United was never going to be a revolution, it was evolution and it was going to take time and it would be a slow change.”
ENI ALUKO will give 1 per cent of her salary to charity after joining Juan Mata’s “Common Goal”.
The Juventus striker was announced by Eric Cantona as the latest to join the initiative started by Manchester United star Mata.
She joins Jurgen Klopp as high-profile supporters to pledge their earnings.
“In football we can’t achieve anything alone, and the same goes for social change – it’s a team game,” said Aluko.
“Only together can we change the world. Now is the time for us all to unite behind a shared vision for football and show how together we can shape the future of the world.
“I always felt I needed to use my voice.
“I’ve been personally affected by racism but, like many other athletes, I want to be able to use my voice to solve this problem in football, and society, because with Common Goal if we address something in football it will have a knock- on effect on society.”
