AC Milan and Juventus join the hunt for Timo Werner (Sempre Milan)

Bayern Munich is going to have some heavy competition for Timo Werner if it decides to formally pursue the RB Leipzig striker.

Young German star Timo Werner is being scouted by Italian giants AC Milan and Juventus, a report claims. According to Fox Sports, the 22-year old is reluctant to sign a new contract with his club, and it has put several of Europe’s elite clubs on alert.

The German international has 14 goals in 21 appearances this season across all competitions, and due to his contract situation it has been suggested that he could leave for just €40m. Both Milan and Juventus are following the situation closely, however it is claimed by Fox that Leipzig are still asking for around €60-70m to seal a deal in January. German outlet Abendzeitung recently claimed that Bayern Munich are interested in Werner if he becomes available, while Liverpool would be a ‘serious competitor’ to sign him.

Thomas Muller speaks to his cartoon self (

Thomas Muller took some time from his busy schedule to produce this video with “Cartoon Thomas Muller.” As always, Muller showed his sense of humor and even spoke some English (probably in preparation for a future move to the Philadelphia Union ).

The video is loaded with inside jokes from Muller’s antics over the years.
