Perfect change! Timo Werner returns from Chelsea after two years

Now it’s official! Timo Werner returns to RB Leipzig after two years at Chelsea. The Saxons announced this Tuesday evening.

The striker will have a contract until 2026. The transfer fee, about which the two clubs have not provided any information, is said to be around 19.5 million euros and could increase to a maximum of 30 million euros with bonus payments.

“Experience of playing in another country and another league helped me a lot on my way. Now I’m looking forward to the new season with RB Leipzig and especially Leipzig fans, who have a special meaning to me.” “We have big plans together and of course I want to be the first Leipzig policeman to break the 100-goal mark,” Werner said.

Timo Werner: Champions League victory with Tuchel

Werner moved from Leipzig to London for 53 million euros two years ago and won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2021. However, the 26-year-old was unable to secure a permanent place in team manager Thomas Tuchel’s squad. In 89 compulsory matches, he scored 23 goals for the Blues.

Werner was already under contract with RB from 2016 to 2020 and became Saxony’s top scorer with 90 goals in 156 competitive games, as well as 40 assists.
