After two seasons at Chelsea, Timo Werner has now completed a return to former club RB Leipzig.
Chelsea confirmed the deal with a brief statement: “Timo Werner has completed a permanent transfer to RB Leipzig, returning to Germany after two seasons with Chelsea.”
Werner goes back to Leipzig having won the Champions, Club World Cup and Super Cup with Chelsea.
Blessed with pace and ability to use both feet, it’s hard to tell why Werner didn’t reach desired heights at Chelsea.
Werner had many memorable moments at Chelsea, but a lack of consistency was the major problem.
In his debut season, he contributed 12 goals and 15 assists in all competitions – the most of the entire Chelsea team.
His electrifying pace caused a lot of teams problems, and he was very influential in our Champions League tie away at the Bernabeu last season. His pace and goal almost gave Chelsea what would have been a memorable victory over the Los Blancos.
Werner was signed by Chelsea for £47.5m, but sold for a mere £25m fee.
