Utd failed to hijack Werner
Man Utd reportedly failed in a last-ditch attempt to hijack Timo Werner’s Chelsea exit.
Werner, 26, returned to former club RB Leipzig for £25million – just two years after joining Chelsea for £45m.
The German’s time at Chelsea was largely hit and miss, with his poor finishing causing lots of frustration among The Blues faithful.
However, United were convinced enough to make an 11th hour bid to try and hijack his move back to Germany, according to Manchester Evening News.
United have had a torrid time in the transfer window this week, with deals for Marko Arnautovic and Adrien Rabiot being met with huge backlash from fans.
Additionally, a move for former RB Salzburg forward Benjamin Sesko also fell flat due to him signing for Leipzig just a few weeks after meeting with United football director John Murtough.
United are now lining up a move to sign wantaway Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech according to MEN’s report, with the Moroccan a former player under Erik ten Hag while at Ajax.
