Germany Star: I Dream Of Playing In The Premier League, Preferably Man Utd
A Germany international, who has been linked with Real Madrid, has admitted it is a dream of his to play in the Premier League, with Manchester United being his preferred destination if he ever made the switch.
RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has made a name for himself over the past season or two, and his performances have even seen him being linked with possibly replacing Karim Benzema at the Santiago Bernabeu.
During an exclusive interview recently, the 22-year-old revealed that there were "two or three clubs" he would join in the English top flight, including the Red Devils and their arch-rivals Liverpool.
"Yes, playing in the Premier League is a dream for me," Werner told FourFourTwo.
"I would like to play for two or three clubs, and Manchester United are one of those clubs. But probably not in the next few years – later, when my English is a little bit better! I'm very comfortable at RB Leipzig, though.
"Manchester United and Liverpool were the teams I watched quite a lot in England. They were the two that I'm a little bit a fan of because they have so much history. When Alex Ferguson was the coach, United won everything and were outstanding.
"In Liverpool, it's also their stadium and the atmosphere. But when I have to decide, I'm more Manchester United than Liverpool.
"I'm now at a point where at some stage in the future I'd like to play in a team that wins titles."
The striker has made 33 appearances for Liepzig so far this season, scoring 16 goals and assisting a further four strikes.
