Timo Werner decided to leave Chelsea and return to the club where he had his best days; Red Bull Leipzig. This fast-footed German will have a chance to revive his career in Germany and to show his qualities, which he obviously has.
The adventure in Chelsea was not very successful. Timo Werner had problems with his form, many criticized him for his attacking performance. It must also be admitted that the injuries affected him and that the German had many problems with them.
Roman Abramovich allocated around 64 million euros a few years ago. Werner was expected to be exactly the striker Chelsea needed, but unfortunately, Werner could not show his full quality. According to some information, the transfer will amount to 20 million euros with some bonuses.
This could be a great move for Werner. Leipzig has big ambitions this season.
Timo Werner's message: I am incredibly grateful
Timo Werner also sent a message to Chelsea and their fans. He is happy for the opportunity he had, and wished everyone within the club the best of luck.
What is most important for him is winning the Champions League, which is also the dream of every player.
"Dear Blues, Today marks the end of my journey with Chelsea FC. I am incredibly grateful for the time I spent at this special club.
At this point, I would like to express my appreciation for my teammates, the coaches & staff, and especially for you, the special supporters of Chelsea Football Club. I felt so much love and support throughout the last two years, and I will never forget how you guys stood behind me in good and in challenging times!
We lifted trophies like the Champions League together, and I will always remember the song you wrote and chanted for me. I'm already looking forward to hopefully playing at Stamford Bridge again one day." See you soon, Timo."
