Werner wants to return to Leipzig.. Real Madrid enters the line | DW | 29.07.2022

Just two years ago, Timo Werner moved from Leipzig to Chelsea for 64 million euros. But it seems that the German star no longer wants to stay in the London team, with whom he scored only 10 goals in two seasons of the English Premier League, as reported by the German “Sport1” website.

According to the site, Werner’s desire to leave (26 years) is due to the fact that he does not get enough time to play, and this may worsen for him with the arrival of Raheem Sterling to the “Blues”.

While the Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” reported that Real Madrid, which is still looking for another striker, has drawn up a list of candidate strikers that includes names such as Edinson Cavani (35) and Eden Dikko (36). And now he’s putting under his radar the hand of another superstar: Timo Werner!
Will Werner return to Leipzig?
And according to “Sport1”, there are talks between Chelsea and Leipzig for Werner to return to the ranks of his former team. A report from “Sky Sport” confirmed that Werner also wants to return to the German team, which he excelled in. In the four years between 2016 and 2020, Werner scored 78 goals in 127 games for Leipzig. He also caught the eye in particular when he led the team in 2020 to the semi-finals of the Champions League!

Although Werner’s return is well received in Leipzig, it may be difficult to implement for purely financial reasons! Werner’s contract with Chelsea runs until 2025, so Leipzig will have to spend a lot of money to get him back, according to “Sport1”. Other than that, Werner’s weekly salary at Chelsea is about 295,000 euros, and thus is one of the five highest paid players in the “Blues” ranks. Leipzig cannot afford to pay such sums.

Although Werner has expressed his willingness, according to “Sport1”, to receive a lower salary in Leipzig, it is possible that his inclusion deal will be so great that the team will have to borrow for him.

Conversations with Juventus
But Leipzig is not the only potential destination for Werner, according to “Sport1”, as Juventus, the Italian, is also still interested in the German star, especially after the inclusion of Angel Di Maria. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano said in a tweet that Werner is the second choice for Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, behind Alvaro Morata.

There are also efforts from Newcastle United to obtain the services of Werner, and therefore he may remain in the English Premier League. But what is clear so far, according to “Sport1”, is that Werner does not want to play with Chelsea next season, especially since he needs to play more matches to be in good physical condition with the German national team in the World Cup in Qatar.

“I can be happy anywhere,” Werner said in a recent interview with The Times. “Obviously I want to play more and I have to play more,” Werner said in a recent interview with The Times. But these comments annoyed his coach Tuchel, who publicly responded by saying: “I would be very happy if I was a young man with a contract with Chelsea”, and asked Werner, saying: “Show quality, get a place and defend your place!” But Werner no longer appears motivated to do so at Chelsea.
