Rangnick wants Werner

In-coming interim Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick wants his new club to sign Timo Werner in the summer.

The German knows his compatriot well, having signed him from Stuttgart when he was at RB Leipzig. Although he was Sporting Director for most of their time together at the Bundesliga season, he did coach him in the 2018/2019 season.

Werner’s form at Leipzig earned him a lucrative form to the Premier League and Chelsea, but he has been unable to replicate that form in England, manging just 15 goals in 64 games so far for the West London club.

Although he is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2025, Werner is worried that his lack of first-team involvement could cost him his place in Germany’s World Cup squad next year.

The German has been linked in recent months with several other top European clubs, including Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Borussia Dortmund, and, if Chelsea are open to sell him, they may prefer that he does not join a direct rival.
