Timo Werner joins RB Leipzig as highest paid

Timo Werner arrives at RB Leipzig from Chelsea as the club's highest paid player.

BILD says Werner will earn €10m-a-year with RB Leipzig - which could rise to €12m depending on bonuses.

Werner is said to be surpassing the previous top earner Christopher Nkunku.

In order to complete his move from Chelsea to Sachsen, Werner still had to accept losses.

With the Blues, the annual salary of the 26-year-old centre-forward was €16-18m.
