Top Leipzig star tells Man Utd, Liverpool not to bother chasing him

Adjust Comment Print

The German global has caught the eye with his 17 overall goals this season with Leipzig, enough to attract the attention of clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

The Germany starlet is one of Europe's most sought-after forwards at the moment and he is believed to be on the radar of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, among other clubs.

But, speaking to Sky after RB Leipzig drew Stuttgart 0-0 on Sunday, Werner committed his future to his current side, at least for the short term.

He scored 21 goals in 33 games last season and has bagged another 17 in 35 games this campaign.

Werner has so far managed 10 Bundesliga goals this season, while bagging another 6 in European competitions.

"Manchester United and Liverpool were the teams I watched quite a lot in England".

In an interview with FourFourTwo magazine, the 10-cap worldwide said: "Yes, playing in the Premier League is a dream for me".

"I will stay here next season whatever the case", the 22-year-old added when asked if he would see out his contract with the club. But probably not in the next few years - later, when my English is a little bit better!
