Real Madrid’s hope of signing Timo Werner this winter has been dealt a major blow as the RB Leipzig’s Sporting Director has denied all links with the European Champions.
Real Madrid have been struggling for goals this season with the likes of Karim Benzema and C. Ronaldo unable to recapture their previous goal scoring forms. They had hope to sign Werner in the winter transfer window to improve their goal scoring record and try to catch Barcelona.
However, RB Leipzig’s Sporting Director, Ralf Ragnick has dismissed any chance of the attacker leaving the German this winter or even the summer.
Speaking to Four Four Two He claimed that they had no plans of allowing the attacker leave them either this January or at the end of the season.
Werner has scored 28 league goals in just over 40 games for the German league contenders after joining them last season from Stuttgart.
He also helped an understrength German team to win the last Confederations Cup in Russia
Leipzig are usually not willing to sell any of their star men, but as seen with the Naby Keita saga, Real Madrid can get their man, if they can pay just enough to get him.
