Mintzlaff: Maybe Werner also wants to join the BVB

The fact that Timo Werner wants to leave Leipzig and wants to switch to FC Bavaria Munich is considered an open secret. Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff, however, questioned the ambitions.

“Maybe he doesn’t even want to go to Munich. Maybe he wants to switch to Tuchel in Paris, or I don’t know where. Perhaps to Jurgen Klopp [FC Liverpool, d. Red] or to Lucien Favre [Borussia Dortmund, d. Red.]”, said Mintzlaff at”Sky”.

Mintzlaff also confirmed that Werner’s stay with the Saxons is”not likely”at the moment. However, there have been no talks with FC Bayern until now. Moreover, the 43-year-old does not rule out Werner changing his mind again.

“For us, what Timo Werner wants was important for the first time now.” It is legitimate for a young player like Werner to take time to decide his future, says Mintzlaff. “Maybe Timo will tell us after the Cup Final:’Come on, I extend again by two years.’
