Noisy Stadiums Trouble Real Madrid Striker Target

RB Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick rejects reports suggesting that striker Timo Werner will sign for Real Madrid next year.

"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. Madrid looks forward to buying the 21-year-old as it attempts to overhaul their squad after a poor start to this season. Werner, often booed by German football fans, both due to being the icon of Leipzig club (despised because of their lack of history), and for a notorious diving of his in Schalke 04's box, has been linked to Bayern Munich, Barcelona FC, Manchester City, and Real Madrid.

However, Rangnick has hit out at speculation claiming that the Germany international will be joining Zinedine Zidane's side in the near future.

"In winter nor in summer: We will keep Timo Werner with us".

Werner has already found the back of the net seven times in 12 Bundesliga games this season, also providing his team-mates with three assists. His goal scoring prowess is remarkable for someone so young, and a move to Real Madrid could accelerate his career. "These are things I do not take seriously", Ragnick added while talking about the reports in Spanish media.

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.
