Timo Werner has informed RB Leipzig that he has no intention of extending his contract, as revealed by Oliver Mintzlaff, the club’s CEO.
The future of Werner with the club has been in doubt for a long time. Leipzig had already expressed a stance that they wouldn’t allow the contract valid until 2020 to enter its final 12 months, meaning that they would, should that prove the case, rather sell the player this summer.
Mintzlaff told Sky Sports in Germany that for their part, the Bundesliga side would love to extend the deal but the response they got from the Germany international was that he would “rather not extend”.
This development is now set to put a host of clubs on “red alert”. Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have all been credited with interest in his services in the past, and the battle for his signature is now likely to begin.
