Timo Werner back in Leipzig: RB only pays a mini fee

The Chelsea striker quickly posed for a selfie in the evening, waved to the waiting fans in front of a luxury hotel in Leipzig, then disappeared into the lobby with his black backpack and a light jacket.

The last formalities should be clarified on Tuesday - so that he can resume his heyday in his oasis of well-being.

“Who wouldn't be happy to have him on their team.

He would be one more top player," said national player David Raum after the cup winner's meager 1-1 (1-1) draw at VfB Stuttgart on Sunday.

According to

Sky

, the medical check will take place on Tuesday, followed by a signature and presentation.

The 26-year-old should start training at RB on Wednesday. 

Werner is said to cost 19.5 million euros plus bonuses - a mini fee compared to 2020. At that time, Leipzig had sold him to London for almost 55 million euros

Leipzig plans another striker transfer: super talent even more expensive than Werner?

For former RB coach Ralf Rangnick, the transfer “makes sense from a sporting point of view.

Timo has speed and depth.

No player at RB has that in the offensive area except Nkunku," said Rangnick on

Sky

.

RB is also said to be about to complete another transfer.

As reported by

Sky

and

Bild

, among others , the 19-year-old storm talent Benjamin Sesko will sign a long-term contract with the Saxons in the coming days.

However, the Slovenian from sister club RB Salzburg should stay with the Austrian series champions for another year and gain more experience.

The fee should be 24 million euros.

Sesko had also attracted interest from several top English clubs.

With a view to the World Cup in Qatar (November 21 to December 18), Werner has been flirting with leaving Chelsea for a long time.

"It's clear that I want to play more and I should play more to be in good shape for the World Cup and have a chance to play," said the attacker recently, emphasizing: "I could be happy anywhere." "

Werner no longer happy in Chelsea – despite the top salary

In Chelsea, this was no longer Werner under coach Thomas Tuchel.

23 goals in 89 competitive games, just 15 starting XI appearances in the last Premier League season - far too little for one who is said to earn £270,000 (317,000 euros).

Per week!

At the weekend Werner was no longer in the Blues squad in Chelsea's 1-0 win at Everton.

In Leipzig, the 53-time national player scored 90 goals in 156 competitive games from 2016 to 2020.

There were also 40 templates.

Werner could celebrate his RB comeback in the home game against Cologne as early as Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky).

Coach Domenico Tedesco would have a luxury problem with Werner.

Goalscorer Christopher Nkunku, who scored in Stuttgart, is set.

But it should be tight for Andre Silva, Alexander Sörloth, Yussuf Poulsen or youngster Hugo Novoa.

The competition at a top club like Leipzig is just there, said Tedesco succinctly: "If you come here, you have to accept it.

It's about performance.”

Timo Werner's transfer nearing completion: return to RB Leipzig

Update from August 8, 4:46 p.m .:

Now everything is going very quickly!

According to information from Sport1

, Timo Werner should

fly to Germany on Monday evening and then complete the medical check on Tuesday.

The striker should then sign the contract and be in the RB Leipzig squad next Saturday (3:30 p.m. against 1. FC Köln).

The cops transfer 20 million to Chelsea as a base amount, but the transfer fee can still rise to 30 million.

The Blues transferred almost 55 million to RB in 2020 to secure Werner's services.

Timo Werner: Transfer apparently fixed, RB Leipzig only pays a mini fee for the DFB star

Update from August 7th, 5:53 p.m.:

Timo Werner and the possible return to RB Leipzig.

What is it?

The

picture

reports that the Saxons only have to pay 20 million euros plus bonuses for the attacker.

That's little compared to the 55 million that Chelsea FC paid to RB two years ago.

In 56 Premier League games, Werner has scored ten goals and provided 13 assists for the Blues.

His contract in London actually runs until 2025.

Timo Werner is apparently returning to the Bundesliga: striker before Leipzig change

First report from August 7th, 5:15 p.m.:

Munich – Apparently someone is fighting for their chance at the World Cup!

Timo Werner is very close to returning to RB Leipzig.

According to Bild am Sonntag

, the Chelsea striker is said to

have already reached an agreement with the Saxons.

Allegedly, the 27-year-old should not even be loaned out, but even firmly committed.

We're talking about a four or five-year contract.

However, Oliver Mintzlaff did not want to confirm this on Sunday afternoon.

"Fix is ​​basically a deal to me when it's signed.

I can say: We haven't signed a new player and haven't signed anything anywhere," said RB managing director at DAZN.

Werner is "certainly an interesting player", but also "still a Chelsea player", added Mintzlaff.

Coach Domenico Tedesco had previously emphasized in the Werner debate: "We have André Silva in front, who is doing very well.

We have Christopher Nkunku in front, we have Alexander Sörloth in front, who makes us more flexible.

If Yussuf Poulsen comes back, we still have a striker.

That's our situation. ”

Sky

, in turn, reported on Sunday morning that the change should not be fixed until next week.

Timo Werner back to RB Leipzig?

Attacker moved to Chelsea in 2020 for 55 million

In 2020, Werner switched from RB to the Blues for around 55 million, but has not yet been able to assert himself at Stamford Bridge.

On Saturday evening at Chelsea's game at Everton, Werner was no longer in the squad.

The DFB attacker hopes that RB will return to the Bundesliga for more playing time and thus better chances for the 2022 World Cup, which will take place in Qatar in November.

Werner, who actually seemed set in the storm under national coach Hansi Flick, had recently hinted at a Chelsea farewell, as he had hardly played a role under Thomas Tuchel recently.

Without playing time, a place in the World Cup starting eleven would also be in danger for Werner – hence the return to RB Leipzig.
