RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner admits he 'dreams' of Manchester United move

RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner admits he 'dreams' of Manchester United move”

Werner netted 21 goals in 31 appearances for Die Bullen last season, helping them to a surprise second placed finish in the Bundesliga.

A graduate of VfB Stuttgart's academy, Werner joined RB Leipzig in the summer of 2016 for a reported £8.5m, after registering 14 goals across 103 matches. Jurgen Klopp was heavily linked with Werner though a transfer failed to come to fruition.

While Werner's dream is to someday move to Old Trafford and wear United's shirt, he still wants to help his current club win trophies.

Speaking to Sky, Werner said: "As a young boy, you always dream of the big club you'd like to play for".

Werner representing Germany on global duty. He's netted six goals from eight worldwide caps as he continues to enhance his reputation.

He hit three goals for Joachim Low's side at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation and will be pushing to be part of his World Cup squad next summer.

He also recalls watching United under Sir Alex Ferguson. "It used to be Manchester United under Alex Ferguson, who always won". A young boy is always a fan of those who win.

"I would say the Italian or the French league is not my thing".

'You can't just drop something like that.

"Then you start to dream of perhaps playing somewhere else sometime".

Werner is developing into a predatory goalscorer, and his pace and ability on the counter-attack could make him ideal for United in bigger games where manager Jose Mourinho opts to sit back and soak up pressure.
