Man United favourite to sign £55m-rated German attacker



Timo Werner

Manchester United have been tipped to be favourite to secure the signing of German Bundesliga RB Leipzig forward ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

The Old Trafford side have been struggling this season with most of the players pulling inconsistent performances so far and that is why it has become necessary for the club to go all out for additions in the coming transfer window.

With Timo Werner seeming to be available having impressed so far this season, he could just be the solution the United boss Jose Mourinho has been seeking for and it is believed that the Red Devils will do all in their powers to have him join the club.

Manchester United will have to battle Real Madrid and Chelsea for the signature of the star striker who has scored 7 goals and handed an assist in 16 games so far this season across all competitions.

The 22-year-old will, therefore, remain with the German Bundesliga side until 2020 if the suitors are unable to land him in January.

Meanwhile, it is unclear of the Portuguese boss will be backed ahead of the winter transfer window with suggestions that he has lost the trust of the board.
