According to Germany’s great Michael Balak, Kai Hawartz’s urge to leave Bayer Leverkusen for Bayern Munich should be resisted, at least for now.

Havertez, 20, has long been regarded as a pillar of German football’s future, breaking numerous records in the process, starting with Leverkusen at the age of eleven.

The midfielder seems to have overtaken Leverkusen and has been identified as a reported target for many of the world’s biggest clubs, including Bayern.

Leverkusen are reportedly spending at least মিল 100 million on the German international, who will be signed by the club until 2022, but Ballack – who moved out of DieWorkslef for Bayern in 2002 – cautioned Hawartz.

“His quality players are in demand everywhere, but I think he’s in good hands at Leverkusen,” the former midfielder told Sportbild.

“The top young players and the general conditions for their further development are perfect L Leverkusen play interesting football, the training opportunities are very good L Leverkusen also provides a cautious environment.

“As a player [at Leverkusen] You can sometimes make mistakes without being the focus of criticism – you should appreciate it.

“Of course, players like Hawartz also want to play in the Champions League, so qualifying for Leverkusen will be important.”

Balak does not doubt the power of Hewartz. In contrast, the 20-year-old considered it as a very minor lack from his game.

However, he believes the player must be prepared to make the move, as Bayern are a more sought-after and challenging place to play.

“As a footballer he used to bring everything with him,” he said. “If we talk about Bayern, if you want to take the next step as a player, you have to be prepared for such a challenge to survive in such a tough environment.

“It will really enhance the space around it – [determine] When the right time will take the next step. “

Havertez scored six goals and set five more before the Bundesliga suspension due to a coronavirus epidemic, with Leverkusen fifth on the table.
