The German wishes to depart from Stamford Bridge. Werner, Timo Real Madrid has received an offer to sign Chelsea forward Timo Werner, who is currently on loan at the west London club. It comes as Thomas Tuchel’s side looks to move Werner on after he made it clear that he wanted to leave, and Real Madrid’s lack of attacking options has led Chelsea to approach them. If the deal goes through, Real Madrid will have to pay 35 million euros for the German’s services, according to ‘El Larguero’ on Cadena Ser. There may also be the option to agree on an initial loan with a trigger to make the switch permanent for the same price, though this would almost certainly include a loan fee. Werner wishes to depart from Chelsea. There are concerns that the player will not support the move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, owing to his desire to leave Chelsea. After only starting 24 games for the Blues last season, the 26-year-old forward reportedly wants to play more first-team football. Coming to Real Madrid would almost certainly imply being a backup to Karim Benzema rather than being first choice. However, with the departure of Luka Jovic and the impending transfer of Borja Mayoral to Getafe, Mariano Diaz is the only current alternative to Benzema. Carlo Ancelotti has even trailed Eden Hazard as a false nine in pre-season as a makeshift solution. Although the Italian has stated that there will be no further additions, striker would be one position to strengthen if Los Blancos return to the transfer market. Werner is being pursued by other clubs. Various clubs across Europe are reportedly pursuing Werner’s services to bolster their squads. Newcastle United in the Premier League are keen to persuade him to stay in England and see him as a statement signing to please their new owners. He’s also been linked with a return to RB Leipzig, where he scored 93 goals in 158 appearances before joining Chelsea. English – Real Madrid Chelsea (England) English – Timo Werner
