Timo Werner Opens Up on Possibility of Playing for Manchester United Next Season
Leipzig striker Timo Werner has opened up on the possibility of playing for Manchester United next season.
It was revealead in February that Manchester United are one of a number of clubs that have already offered personal terms to the prolific 24 year old German, who has scored 27 goals in all competitions this season.
Liverpool have been the frontrunners to sign the German player but his latest comments suggest that he might prefer a move to Old Trafford.
At this time in professional soccer there are two different variations. The first is to be part of a team like Liverpool or Manchester City. They have a good working team. The teams have also great coaches.
But this is the question. Do you want to go to that kind of team, because the situation is already that hard for each member and you want to be a part of it? That’s one point you have to look at as well.
The other side are teams which need some big changes, because they just won a few big titles, but they are not able to compete on the highest level anymore. For me Manchester United is one of these teams.
So at this point of my career I’m asking myself if I want to be part of a new team, to build up something new, or do I want to stay at my team and make something great?
Timo Werner’s comments clearly imply that the Red Devils are in the running to sign him and that it is far from a lost cause, which will be music to the ears of Manchester United fans desperate to see the club sign a striker to replace Romelu Lukaku on a permanent basis.
Werner has a release clause which was believed to be €60 million (£52 million) but reports have suggested it is lower than that and is just €30 million (£26 million).
Leipzig played Spurs tonight in the second leg of their Champions League winning the Spurs 3 goals to nill.
