Ralf Rangnick could look to bring Timo Werner to Man United. No really…
Manchester United’s new manager Ralf Rangnick is yet to take charge of his first game – though we shouldn’t have to wait too long.
The meticulous planner is already doing his work behind the scenes apparently. The 63-year-old will want to mould this squad into one that fits his style of play, even if he’s not the one taking charge of the players beyond this summer.
Well, according to one journalist, Timo Werner is on Rangnick’s radar…
Apparently, the German ‘wants to discuss’ a transfer of the struggling 25-year-old this summer. A player who Rangnick is familiar with, signing him for RB Leipzig a few years ago.
Check out Christian Falk’s tweet on the situation here:
Werner’s struggles in the Premier League have been there for all to see. But perhaps he’s just being used wrongly at this point in time? I always watch the German and I’m left impressed by everything he does – until he’s in front of goal, that’s when his finishing tends to let him down.
Maybe a confidence-booster from a transfer away, working with a manager who you know has your back could be exactly what Werner needs. It would be a gamble, however.
There’s a reason why Chelsea spent big bucks to bring Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge to displace Werner from the side. A club like United shouldn’t settle for second best.
As things stand, we should firmly support any decision that Rangnick makes. If he wants Werner then so be it, go out there and get the German his man – why not do it in January if it’s at all possible?
