Bayern not interested in Timo Werner according to RB Leipzig boss

Bayern Munich have shown no interest in signing Liverpool and Manchester United target Timo Werner, according to RB Leipzig chief Ralph Rangnick.

The German international has been strongly linked with a summer move to the Bundesliga champions, having failed to sign a new deal as he looks for a move to a bigger club.

Leipzig are keen to sell the 23-year-old this summer rather than risk losing him for nothing when his contract expires in 2020, with Liverpool and Manchester United believed to be monitoring his situation.

It had been thought Werner would join Bayern in the upcoming summer transfer window, however, Leipzig boss Ralph Rangnick insists the Bavarian giants have made no contact regarding their star striker.

“I would not be so sure that Werner will actually go to Bayern,” Rangnick told Sport Bild.

“If Bayern were absolutely sure about Timo, they would have already officially contacted us with a request. Anything else would be unusual for Bayern, especially since we have a good relationship with them.

“Our position has not changed: we do not want him to go into the last year of his contract without an extension.”
