The forward is about to join Chelsea, Timo Werner is sad to refuse to play the Champions League 2019-2020 for Leipzig but cannot do otherwise. Of course he was sad to not be able to contribute to Leipzig in the rest of the Champions League this season.
Chelsea agreed to spend $ 68 million to break Werner’s contract. Under the new contract, the German international will join Stamford Bridge after the Bundesliga season ends.
Werner is the most prolific striker in Leipzig history, with 95 goals. This season, he contributed 28 goals in 34 matches in the Bundesliga, helping the team win tickets to the Champions League.
Werner wants to come to Chelsea on the right day, to have time to integrate into life in London before attending the Premier League 2020-2021. Although unable to continue the Champions League journey with Leipzig, the German international will still follow the progress of the old team.
Werner was in a dilemma when Leipzig wanted him to finish knockout rounds with the team. The 24-year-old striker decided to miss an appointment with the Champions League this season. Although he and his teammates made history with the first victory in the quarterfinals of the tournament.
“Since that day, I have been paid by Chelsea. Clearly Chelsea, me and Leipzig had to handle the problem together. I try to stay as far away from the Champions League-related incident as possible, because obviously I will have to hurt either side. That’s why my agent worked and reached an agreement with both clubs about it.”, Werner told Sportbuzzer News.
Werner will join Chelsea in the next few days, but is not allowed to play for the English team for the rest of the season. That means Chelsea will not have his service in the Premier League top 4 race as well as the FA Cup semi-final against Man Utd.
