Bundesliga 21-year-old striker dreams of Manchester United transfer

RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has admitted that he dreams of playing for Manchester United at some stage in his career. The 21-year-old has earned the reputation of being one of Germany’s leading strikers over the past year.

Werner was relatively unknown to the footballing world until he contributed 21 goals in Leipzig’s maiden Bundesliga campaign last term. The youngster has since gone on to represent Germany on a regular basis, and he won the Golden Boot award in their recent Confederations Cup triumph.

Speaking to Sky Germany, the former Schalke graduate revealed that he has been a keen supporter of Manchester United since his early days, and he still harbours the ambition of representing the Red Devils.

“As a young boy, you always dream of the big club you’d like to play for,” he told Sky h/t Goal.com.It used to be Manchester United under Alex Ferguson, who always won. A young boy is always a fan of those who win. You can’t just drop something like that. When it’s going well, you dream of playing somewhere else.”

Obviously, Werner would be a top-class signing for United in the future, but there is very less chance that Jose Mourinho will opt for a two-striker partnership. The German can also ply his trade on the flanks, but he is less effective as seen during his time at Schalke, where he managed just 14 goals in over 100 outings.
