RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has rubbished rumours that he could be moving to Liverpool or Manchester United this summer.
Werner has netted 17 times in 35 appearances for Leipzig this campaign, having also scored 21 goals in 33 outings last season.
The 22-year-old’s form has led to speculation linking him with a big-money move to the Premier League, but he has ruled out the possibility of leaving the Bundesliga outfit this summer.
“Next year, definitely, I will stay in Leipzig,” Werner told the club’s official website after a 0-0 draw against Stuttgart this weekend.
The Confederations Cup Golden Boot-winner, who has four years left on his RB Leipzig contract, is expected to lead the Germany attack during this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
Meanwhile, United have reportedly increased their interest in Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, who is likely will depart in the upcoming transfer market.
The 24-year-old has caught the interest of many Europe’s top clubs following a string of impressive works for The Old Lady.
Italian TV station Rai Sport claims that Dybala is now recognizing the possibility of leaving Turin at the end of the season due to rising pressure between himself and the club.
After all, should United go in for the striker then they would likely face difficulties from other clubs, including free-spending Paris Saint-Germain among the clubs also credited with an interest.
