Bundesliga No.11 star reveals why he chose Man United over Liverpool

RB Leipzig star Timo Werner has revealed the reason he favours a potential move to Manchester United over Liverpool.

Werner, 21, has scored 37 goals in 65 appearances for Leipzig since joining the club back in 2016 and is regarded as one of the most promising young talents in Germany.

The Premier League’s elite are all keeping close tabs on Werner’s progress and it’s understood the likes of United, Liverpool and Manchester City could battle it out for the forward’s signature in the summer transfer window.

Werner has made not secret of his admiration for the English top flight and hinted that he would jump at the chance to move to Old Trafford.

Speaking with FourFourTwo magazine, he admitted: ‘Yes, playing in the Premier League is a dream for me. ‘I would like to play for two or three clubs, and Manchester United are one of those clubs.

But probably not in the next few years – later, when my English is a little bit better! I’m very comfortable at RB Leipzig, though.’

Werner believes he would have a greater chance of silverware were he to join United over Liverpool. ‘Manchester United and Liverpool were the teams I watched quite a lot in England.

They were the two that I’m a little bit a fan of, because they have so much history,’ he added. ‘When Alex Ferguson was the coach, United won everything and were outstanding.

‘In Liverpool it’s also their stadium and the atmosphere. But when I have to decide, I’m more Manchester United than Liverpool. ‘I’m now at a point where at some stage in the future I’d like to play in a team that wins titles.’
