      The striker has gone back to the club that earned him his stellar reputation.

      Chelsea have confirmed that forward Timo Werner has completed a permanent transfer to return RB Leipzig. The Germany international had earlier announced his depature and said goodbye to teammates and supporters alike.

      understands the deal is worth around £25million, including bonuses, many of which are viewed as achievable. Werner has signed a contract until 2026 with the side he has already played 156 times for while scoring 90 goals and assisting 40 more. The Blues star will don the number 11 shirt upon his return.

      Werner spent two years at Stamford Bridge, having joined in the summer of 2020 for a £49.5 million fee and has helped the club to the Champions League, Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup trophies. However, the 26-year-old, despite enjoying a healthy relationship with fans, has been unable to replicate the goalscoring prowess he showed in the Bundesliga.

      The striker indicated he would be open to a transfer earlier this summer when he suggested he would be happy anywhere. Werner said: “First of all, the most important thing is that I am happy. I am happy when I play and score goals. That’s the fact. I could be happy everywhere.


      “It is clear I want to play more, and I should play more to first be in good shape for the World Cup and, also, to have a chance to play at the World Cup.

      I think it doesn’t change anything whether it is a winter World Cup or in the summer. I think if I play half of the season of the whole season, I should play.”
