An agreement has not been reached between Chelsea and Leipzig. Timo Werner’s transfer is not finished yet and he is still a player of the German club.
In recent days, it has been reported that the leaders of the “Aristocrats” have decided to add a young German striker. As if they were going to use the clause in his contract, according to which the value of Werner in the summer of this year is 60 million.
Liverpool have also been actively linked with the player. The British media reported that Jurgen Klopp wanted to add him. But the bosses of the “Merseysiders” refused to do so because they considered the payment of 60 million for the player too much.
Leipzig director Oliver Mintzlaff has denied reports that an agreement has already been reached between the German team and Chelsea, with the player himself agreeing to the transfer.
“It is true that Timo Werner expressed his desire to replace the club a few weeks ago. But the information spread in the media about the agreement is not right.
Timo is still a Leipzig footballer. We’ve not received any official offer from the “Aristocrats” so far. We have deliberately included this clause in his contract. So, if desired, we can allow him to make a decision independently, which will further help him in his development.
At this point, I can tell you that this point is useless. When something changes, we will definitely let you know, “said Oliver Mintzlaff.
In the current season of the Bundesliga, Timo Werner has scored 25 goals and eight assists. While in the Champions League, he has scored three goals and one assist.
