Kai Havertz is threatening to do the unthinkable. The Bayer Leverkusen midfielder is not only keeping pace with England wonderkid Jadon Sancho as the most desireable Bundesliga player for Premier League clubs, but the 20-year-old could also potentially steal the limelight away from the former Manchester City youngster.
And that’s no easy feat. English players are generally overhyped and wonderkids are often crushed underneath the weight of expectation – but not before being pushed to the stars by the press. Sancho’s performances for Borussia Dortmund justify the hype and then some.
