Timo Werner, Anthony Modeste and Co. returnees in football


Timo Werner isn't the first professional soccer player to look for happiness elsewhere but didn't find it and therefore returned to where he felt comfortable. For the clubs, this is usually a profitable business.

With Timo Werner, RB Leipzig has signed a prominent returnee for the Bundesliga - and even made a good deal.

Leipzig are paying much less to Chelsea for the German national striker than they received from London two years ago.

1. FC Köln managed to bring home a particularly profitable return in November 2018: In the summer, the club sold their striker Anthony Modeste to Tianjin Quanjian in China for 29 million euros, only to take him back a few months later on a free transfer.
