Man Utd legend Dimitar Berbatov tells transfer target Kai Havertz to snub Prem… and bulk up – The Sun


DIMITAR BERBATOV has urged Kai Havertz to snub the Premier League — and bulk up.

The Bayer Leverkusen midfielder, 20, has been linked with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and United and enhanced his growing reputation with two goals in Monday’s 4-1 win over Werder Bremen.


Dimitar Berbatov has warned German sensation Kai Havertz against a move to the Premier League just yet and concentrate on bulking up

But Berbatov, who left Leverkusen to join Spurs in 2006, believes Havertz is not yet tough enough to leave his native Germany.

Berbatov, 39, said: “I’d like to see Havertz in the Premier League but it is a bit too early for him.

“He will need a bit more muscle. We all know how defenders can squash you and smash you into pieces.

“You need to be ready for that if you are going to hit the ground running in such a demanding league.

“He should stay at Leverkusen and develop even more, get that experience which will help him for when the time comes to go somewhere else.”

Speaking as a Betfair ambassador, the Bulgarian added: “All eyes are on the Bundesliga at the moment.

“Havertz needs to get used to the sounds being made about him following his two goals on Monday night because teams are going to come after him.

“He has enough quality and if he continues the way he is going, teams will still be there — they won’t go away.”

Leverkusen will leapfrog third-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach with a win there today.
