Manchester United speculated move for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has received a huge boost as Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann claimed he won’t stop the striker from leaving.
The RB Leipzig manager promised not to block Man United move for his most in-form player in January despite his desire to have the 23-year-old striker around beyond this season.
Nagelsmann tilde reporters that he will support the player’s decisions about his future even if it means losing him United or Liverpool.
According to the manager, he will advise the German star to consider his playing time and overall development while making a final decision as regards to his future.

Having spent three-and-a-half years at Leipzig, Werner’s immediate future has been one of the most trending topics among transfer pundits as Man United and Liverpool are very much keen on his signature.
The German has scored 76 goals in 130 matches for Leipzig, and the impressive goalscoring record has caught the attention of the two Premier League giants.
Despite Nagelsmann’s promise to let go of the player, RB Leipzig board members are unwilling to release the 23-year-old this summer because he recently extended his deal with them.
Man United manager Solskjaer will definitely be happy with Nagelsmann’s comments but he still faces stiff challenges from Liverpool and Leipzig’s hierarchy.
