Man Utd Surprise in Move for German Striker, Timo Werner

In a surprising twist, Timo Werner is now reportedly a transfer target for Premier League giants Manchester United. The 27-year-old forward, who has been linked with various loan moves away from RB Leipzig, including interest from Real Madrid, may be considering a move to Manchester United.

According to Sky Sports Germany, Werner would prefer to complete the Bundesliga season with RB Leipzig before making a permanent switch. Despite having a contract with Leipzig until 2026, the German international, with only two league starts this season, could potentially leave for a reduced fee.

Manchester United, led by manager Erik ten Hag, is eager to bolster its attack, especially with injuries affecting Rasmus Hojlund. The need for a reliable striker is more apparent than ever for the Red Devils.

Florian Plettenberg, a source from Sky Sports Germany, revealed that Manchester United has inquired about Werner’s availability. However, no official offer has been made, and negotiations are yet to take place. Erik ten Hag is expected to closely monitor Werner’s situation in the coming weeks as the transfer window approaches.

If the move materializes in January, Werner would join the ranks of temporary striking options at Old Trafford, alongside players like Odion Ighalo and Wout Weghorst. Despite scoring only twice this season, Werner showcased his goal-scoring prowess with 16 goals in the previous Bundesliga campaign.

On a broader note, Timo Werner, born on March 6, 1996, in Stuttgart, Germany, is a professional footballer who currently plays as a forward for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and represents the Germany national team. He began his senior club career in 2013 with VfB Stuttgart, becoming the club’s youngest debutant and goalscorer. His journey also included a stint with Chelsea F.C. from July 2020 to 2022. Werner wears the number 11 jersey for both RB Leipzig and the German national football team.
