Premier League: Revealed, Timo Werner had a pre-contract with Bayern Munich a year before joining Chelsea
Timo Werner is reported to have signed a pre-contract with Bayern Munich in 2019. However, because his transfer did not get a good response from club officials, Werner canceled the deal.
Werner has been one of the most impressive players since moving to RB Leipzig in 2016. Werner has consistently scored goals in the Bundesliga. Werner also brought Die Roten Bullen to the top competition.
In the 2018/2019 season, Werner had contact with Bayern Munich. He is also linked with Liverpool. Werner was hoping to move from RB Leipzig on a free transfer in July 2019.
Quoted from Goal International , at that time Werner’s agent, Karl-Heinz Forster, had an agreement with Bayern Munich to move in July 2019. There was already a pre-contract agreed by Bayern and Werner.
On the other hand, in February 2019, there was Liverpool who made a very attractive offer. Liverpool are ready to give a salary of 12 million euros per season and bonuses that reach 25 million euros.
Werner and his agent turned down the opportunity to go to Liverpool. They chose Bayern. However, this agreement was broken before the official move. Werner learned that Niko Kovac, then coach, and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic had no interest in his services.
Timo Werner then asked Forster to cancel all initial deals. Werner then signed a new contract with RB Leipzig.
The story of Werner’s transfer to Bayern Munich was revealed after a dispute broke out between Forster and his former partner Murat Lokurlu. In the past, they had worked together and are now separated.
Lokurlu claims Forster owes him 660,000 euros. Lokurlu claims he should have earned that amount when Werner signed his first professional contract at Stuttgart in 2014. This case is currently rolling in court.
Lokurlu presented some evidence in the case. One of them is a conversation on WhatsApp, including one that reveals the existence of a pre-contract between Werner and Bayern.
Timo Werner failed to move to Bayern in the 2019/2020 season. He stayed at RB Leipzig and did very well. Liverpool are still interested in the services of Timo Werner. However, the Reds could not redeem the release clause of 53 million euros.
In the end, Werner moved to Chelsea at the start of the 2020/2021 season. The 25-year-old had a pretty good first season with the Champions League. However, he received a lot of criticism because of the lack of goals scored.

Timo Werner is also reportedly refusing Liverpool in order to join the Blues squad. According to Der Spiegel, the German national team player has been heavily linked with the Reds in 2020. Liverpool is also the club that has been most aggressively approaching Werner.
Reports last summer indicated that Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp wanted the forward to operate as an alternative to Roberto Firmino.
Werner has played in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig, where he scored 34 goals during the 2019/2020 season.
However, in the end the Reds chose not to recruit Werner and instead recruited Diogo Jota from Wolves on a long-term contract.
Timo Werner also joined Chelsea in June 2020.
