Real Madrid keen to acquire Werner

RB Leipzig sporting director Ralph Rangnick has rejected talk of Timo Werner joining Real Madrid either in January or in the close-season.

The highly-rated 21-year-old has seen his stock rise considerably since joining Leipzig on the back of their promotion to the Bundesliga in 2016.

The young forward finished the last Bundesliga campaign with 21 goals and five assists, and has continued that form into this season, grabbing seven goals and two assists in 11 appearances so far. Werner, often booed by German football fans, both due to being the icon of Leipzig club (despised because of their lack of history), and for a notorious diving of his in Schalke 04's box, has been linked to Bayern Munich, Barcelona FC, Manchester City, and Real Madrid.

But Rangnick said: "In winter nor in summer: We will keep Timo Werner with us".

While happy in his current surroundings, Werner admits that things could have been very different for him had Bayern Munich expressed an interest in his services when he was heading for the exits at Stuttgart.

Timo Werner has also been linked with Bayern Munich.

Werner also said he is in no hurry to make a move away from the Red Bull Arena.

Werner has worn earplugs for some matches since the incident and, according to Marca, Real are concerned that the issue may mean a move would not work out...

There is a lot of talent in this individual and a potential that can take him sky-high!
