RB Leipzig and Timo Werner will probably go their separate ways this summer. The national player apparently does not want to extend his contract, which runs until 2020, which is why the third-placed player is forcing a sale.
FC Bayern Munich has for some time been considered the top favorite for the commitment of the center forward. According to media reports, the German record champion in poker around the 23-year-old will have to adjust to considerable competition.
On Saturday afternoon, Werner scored his 59th compulsory goal for RB Leipzig in the 2-0 home win against VfL Wolfsburg. Many goals in the Red Bull jersey will probably not be scored anymore. CEO Oliver Mintzlaff told Sky at the weekend that the attacker “would rather not extend his working paper”. The Saxons do not want to let the national team player go free and are therefore striving for a sale in the summer. According to reports, the third-placed player in the table is demanding around 40 million euros for the former Stuttgart player.
Achieved 2-0 against Wolfsburg: Timo Werner
FC Bayern is said to be the 23-year-old’s favorite target. As the Bild newspaper reports, Werner consultant Karlheinz Förster has already defined the cornerstones for possible cooperation with the responsible persons of the German record champion. It is questionable, however, whether the leader of the table is prepared to pay the sum called up by the Saxons.
According to the tabloid Leipzig is hoping for further bidders who will push up the price. In addition to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool FC are also said to have put out their feelers for the international. In the current season, Werner played 31 matches in which he was directly involved in 23 goals (17 goals/six templates).
