Timo Werner will be staying at Chelsea amid rumours of a move to Real Madrid.
The German striker has scored only 12 goals for Chelsea in his debut season and was expected to nail down the central striking berth since his first few games.
His contract is due to expire in 2025 and his agent has reassured fans that he won’t be leaving Stamford Bridge anytime soon.
“Some top clubs from Europe wanted him. FC Bayern was there too. But in the end Timo decided on Chelsea,” Karlheinz Forster told the Sport1 podcast Meine Bayern-Woche.
Quizzed on whether the 25-year-old could take in a second spell working under Nagelsmann, Forster added: “You can’t rule out anything, but if I had to assess it at the moment, then I would say very clearly that Timo will stay at Chelsea.
“He feels comfortable there. A move will not be an issue in the foreseeable future.
“Julian let Timo play in a different position at Leipzig. A bit like Thomas Muller at Bayern.
“Julian and Timo appreciate each other. Of course, I don’t yet know what will happen in three or four years. Football is fast moving.”
