Maybe I'd Have Signed For Bayern Munich - Liverpool Target Timo Werner

Reports claimed that Real were set to launch a bid in either in the January transfer window or next summer, but Rangnick has made it clear the talented youngster is not for sale.

"Of course I have to honestly admit that I might have gone to Bayern if they had knocked on the door before RB Leipzig", Werner told Welt am Sonntag. Currently, the Spanish Giants are lagging behind Barcelona by 8 points. The noise generated by the vociferous Turkish support resulted in Werner asking to be substituted as he was suffering difficulties with his hearing and his breathing.

Werner, 21, has a contract at the Bundesliga club until 2020 and Real Madrid are not alone in casting covetous gazes at the Germany international, who has scored 11 times in 18 games for Leipzig this season. His goal scoring prowess is remarkable for someone so young, and a move to Real Madrid could accelerate his career.

Of the reports in the Spanish press of Madrid's interest, Rangnick added: "These are things I do not take seriously". The striker, owing to his spectacular performances, has gained the eye of numerous top dogs.

Werner, so we're led to believe, has been under-going investigative treatment to get to the root cause of his problem and has also resorted to wearing ear-plugs to help.

Also, Werner finished the last season of Bundesliga with an impressive goal tally, rocketing his club to the position of runners-up.
