Timo Werner has left Chelsea to rejoin RB Leipzig on a four-year contract for a reported fee of £25.3 million.
Die Roten Bullen announced: “The 26-year-old played for RB Leipzig between 2016 and 2020. And scored 95 goals in 159 games, making him the club’s record goal scorer.
“Welcome back, Timo! It’s great to have you here again!
“Werner is a Red Bull once again. And is expected to take part in team training on Wednesday.
“Welcome back, Timo!”
Timo Werner said: “I’m very happy to be able to play for RB Leipzig again. I had a great time here between 2016 and 2020, when we performed brilliantly as newcomers in the league. It was a dignified departure for me to leave the club as record goalscorer, but that’s in the past now and I’m looking ahead, because both I and the club have developed in the past two years.
“I had two great years at Chelsea that I’m really grateful for and were crowned with the Champions League trophy. The experience to play abroad in a new league really helped me and my career. Now I’m looking forward to the new season with RB Leipzig and above all to meeting the Leipzig fans again, who mean a great deal to me. We want to achieve a lot and of course, I want to become the first Leipzig player to reach the 100-goal mark.”
