£47m signing says he has no regrets snubbing Liverpool for Chelsea

Timo Werner joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig for £47.5 million two years ago.

Werner was on the verge of joining Liverpool until Chelsea snatched him away.

Werner was questioned what may have been, but he claims he has no regrets about the transfer because he went on to win the Champions League with Chelsea the following year.

“The only thing I can say is they have a German manager,” Werner told the Evening Standard when asked if he was close to joining Liverpool before joining Chelsea.

“I’ve known him for a long time since he mentioned moving to Dortmund while I was at Stuttgart.” Then I didn’t play very well, so it was over.

“I got the opportunity to see the Premier League when I was in Leipzig.” Liverpool was also on my mind and a strong contender for me, but I ultimately chose Chelsea and won the Champions League last season. It wasn’t the worst decision I’d ever made.”
