Report: RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner to decide on future soon

New, comments

RB Leipzig star Timo Werner has been linked to Bayern Munich for months, but there has been no movement on that front. Could he stay with Die Roten Bullen longer or will he look at foreign options like Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain?

According to a report from Sport1, RB Leipzig star Timo Werner will make a decision on his future shortly, but will not be pressured by his current club. Die Roten Bullen are doing everything that they can to keep Werner happy in hopes of retaining the high-scoring striker.

RB Leipzig is fully aware that Bayern Munich has engaged in discussions with Werner and are letting Werner have time and space to decide his future, but they do not want the situation to drag on forever. Specifically, though, Werner will not be given an ultimatum.

The future of the national player is still not clear; the contract of the former Stuttgart player expires at the end of the season. New sporting director Markus Krösche said that the striker would not be given an ultimatum. “Time will show how he decides.” However, the 38-year-old also made it clear that he did not want to have “endless” patience.

The report also stated that a decision on this matter will be made soon and Bayern Munich might no longer be as interested in the 23-year-old as they were just a few weeks ago.

According to Sport1 information, the decision about Werner’s future will be made shortly. Although a transfer to FC Bayern had been decided for a long time, now everything is open again. According to Sport1’s information, there are growing doubts in Munich as to whether Werner would actually strengthen Bayern despite his speed and proven scoring ability. Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is not one hundred percent convinced of the national striker either.

In light of Bayern Munich’s alleged uncertainty on Werner, it could mean that the Germany international is back at Red Bull Arena for at least another season or that he might be considering a move abroad. Per previous reports, Liverpool has already expressed interest in Werner, while Paris Saint-Germain was also allegedly in the mix to bring him in.

It is therefore all the more likely that Werner will stay in Leipzig for another year. At least. As Sport1 has found out, it is conceivable for the player to move abroad or to extend his RB career. Werner feels comfortable on the team. He has a good relationship with leading players like Kevin Kampl, and his fellow striker Yussuf Poulsen is one of his best buddies on the team.

Whatever the case, this could be one more transfer saga put to rest in the coming days.
