German star admits to Man United, Man City & Barcelona desire

RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has today opened up on the links between he and some of European football’s biggest clubs.

Top-class prospect

Werner, a 21-year-old German international, made the move to the Red Bull Arena last summer from Stuttgart, for a fee of around 10 million Euro.

And, despite his tender years, the hitman has gone on to enjoy a sensational 18 months with the club, having found the net 31 times in 51 Bundesliga outings.

His stellar club form has also earned Werner consistent call-ups to the German national side of late, with the Stuttgart youth product having gone on to rack up 7 goals in 10 appearances for Die Mannschaft.


Unsurprisingly, the prolific starlet’s excellent recent form has seen him shortlisted by a number of Europe’s top clubs as a transfer target, with the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Manchester United previously touted as potential destinations.

Werner’s revelation last year that he is a long-time Manchester United fan saw links between the German and the Red Devils inevitably intensify, with the board at Old Trafford reportedly keeping a close eye on his development at the Red Bull Arena.

However, when questioned on his future during an interview with Sport1 earlier today, Werner revealed that the Red Devils are just 1 of 5 clubs that he ‘would like to play for’:

‘If you take Germany, it would be a lie to say that you would not like to play for Bayern.’

‘It would be a lie to say in England you’d not like to play for Manchester United or Manchester City.’

‘Spain – Barca or Real. There are great clubs in every league. Italy or France would not be my leagues, but the other three.’

‘There are so many clubs you’d like to play for. I don’t want to tie myself down. I’ll see what happens.’
