Bayern Munich chief hits out at Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea transfer target Timo Werner

Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge could not hide his irritation at Timo Werner after the Red Bull Leipzig forward’s comments about a transfer.

Werner, who is wanted by Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea, responded publicly to rumours linking him with German champions Bayern – flatly shutting them down.

‘If a change should become an issue at some point, I would rather take a step abroad than switch to Bavaria,’ the 24-year-old told Bild. The comments did not sit well with Rummenigge who claims to have ‘never seen’ a player respond in this way in public.

‘I’m actually no longer astonished at anything, but I have never seen a player make such a statement in response to rumours in public,’ Rummenigge told Bild. Werner, 24, has been linked with a move to the Premier League – with Liverpool thought to be in pole position to land him.

And former Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick, now head of sport and development at their parent company Red Bull, believes he would fit in best at Anfield. ‘The league is less important, but the club, from a purely hypothetical point of view, I would better see him in good hands with a club that is not necessarily defined by ball possession football,’ Rangnick told Bild.
