Man Utd 'express interest' in signing former Chelsea striker Werner

Former Chelsea forward Timo Werner is wanted by Manchester United, Sky Germany is reporting.

Werner is not satisfied with his situation at RB Leipzig - but the player's preference at this stage is to stay at least until next summer.

The report claims that United's interest in Werner should be monitored over the coming weeks ahead of the January transfer window.

Sky Germany reports that Erik ten Hag's side have already enquired about Werner's availability, but no offer has been made and there have been no negotiations at this stage.

Werner - who is in Manchester this week as Leipzig face Champions League holders Man City at the Etihad - has previously been linked with a move to Real Madrid, but the LaLiga club have cooled their interest.
