RB Leipzig chief warns Liverpool: Werner won't get cheaper

Red Bull Leipzig chief Oliver Mintzlaff insists Timo Werner will only leave for top price this summer.

Despite the coronavirus impact across Europe, the likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid have been warned Werner won't leave cheaply.

"He won't get cheaper," Mintzlaff told Sport Bild. "We will not sell a player below his value if he has more than a year under the contract.

"We will have full control over the situation. I am calm. Timo has a contract for another three years."

For Liverpool, they have until June 15 to acquire the German for €55m thanks to a buyout clause in Werner's contract. After this date, the amount will increase to €64m.
