TIMO WERNER will move to Chelsea or Manchester United – but only if Liverpool won’t meet his £49million release clause with RB Leipzig.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp wanted the 24-year-old Germany striker but the deal has hit red tape with Anfield chiefs not willing to pay more than £30m.

Werner had already snubbed a move to Bayern Munich as he wants to try out the Premier League.

He had set his heart on a move to Anfield but could now be forced to look elsewhere.

Both Chelsea and United want the forward, who has scored 31 goals in 43 games this season.

According to Sky Sport Italia journalist Fabrizio Romano Werner will accept a move to London or Manchester – but only if the Merseysiders pull the plug on a deal.

He tweeted: “Liverpool two weeks ago asked time to Leipzig for Timo Werner.

“The two clubs are not in official talks yet – but #LFC are still Werner’s priority.

“He spoke with Klopp many times and he will wait Liverpool.

“He’d consider other bids only if Liverpool will decide to give up.”

Anfield chiefs are well aware his release clause drops to £35m in 2021 and could go back in then – unless another Prem club signs him this summer.

United need a striker quickly as Odion Ighalo will switch back to his Chinese club this week.


 

Blues also need more goals.

They could lose Willian, Pedro and Olivier Giroud in July.

The trio are all out of contract.
