EPL: Why Timo Werner cancelled contract with Bayern Munich


Timo Werner signed a pre-contract agreement with Bayern Munich in 2019, but cancelled the deal after he found out the club’s senior officials did not want him, Goal reports.

Werner, who was with RB Leipzig at the time, was on a contract that expired in 2020, and was eyeing a move away as a free agent.

But the German forward found out that then-Bayern manager Niko Kovac and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic were not keen on him.

Werner then asked his agent, Karl-Heinz Forster, to cancel the deal.

It is also claimed Werner was in talks with Liverpool over a transfer in February 2019.

Liverpool offered the player who is now at Chelsea a salary of €12million per year and a further €25m in bonuses.

But Forster instead pushed his client to join Bayern and set up a deal, before Werner learned of the Bavarians’ indifference. He eventually signed a new deal with Leipzig.
