The winter transfer window is finally closed and the English Premier League leaders Liverpool failed in their attempt to secure the signature of RB Leipzig star Timo Werner.
Unsuccessful attempts were made as the Merseyside club were keen on the signature of the star player with suggestions that the deal would be concluded before the end of the window.
However, it has been revealed that the reason why the deal failed to fall through is that RB Leipzig’ chief wanted to benefit from Timo Werner which is the reason why they sought to have him sign a new contract which will carry a £61 million release (exit/buy-out) clause.
It is claimed that Timo Werner would be sold in the subsequent transfer window but until they have succeeded in having him sign a new deal that will involve the above clauses.
The long list of Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, and Bayern Munich are on the queue for the signature of the star player according to reports from Germany.
With Timo Werner’s current contract running out in June of 2020, he was available for a move away from the club but limited to the decision of the Merseyside club.
