Timo Werner reveals his dreams about playing for one Premier League club

Premier League & Timo Werner

After their 1-0 win at Benfica midweek, Manchester United return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon with a trip to Huddersfield Town.

Last weekend's draw away to Liverpool saw the Red Devils slip two points behind Pep Guardiola's in-form Manchester City, who are averaging a ridiculous 3.63 goals per game.

England's top-flight is regarded by many as the most competitive in the world, and another league which you could throw into the mix for that title right now is the Bundesliga.

Yes, Bayern Munich have won it six times in a row, but Borussia Dortmund currently top the table and surprise package RB Leipzig are proving that they're not just a one-season wonder.

Naby Keita has already secured his big move to Liverpool, but another one of the Bundesliga's biggest prospects has now admitted that he dreamt of playing for Man United.

Bundesliga star dreams of playing for Man Utd

One of the key figures behind Leipzig's rapid rise has revealed his Man Utd dream, and his name is Timo Werner.

The striker took the Bundesliga by storm last season after scoring 21 times, and he's doing the business again in the 2017-18 campaign, with five goals in just six league outings.


Werner has been linked with Liverpool and even Barcelona, but the 21-year-old, who was a boyhood Man United fan, grew up watching the incredibly successful Sir Alex Ferguson teams.

"As a young boy, you always dream of the big club you'd like to play for," the German international told Sky, via Goal.

"It used to be Manchester United under Alex Ferguson, who always won. A young boy is always a fan of those who win."


Werner continued: "You can't just drop something like that. When it's going well (at Leipzig), you dream of playing somewhere else."

Werner to United?

Obviously, a lot has changed at Old Trafford since Sir Alex retired back in 2013, but United fans can certainly forgive themselves for getting excited by these comments.

Werner has claimed that he "can't just drop" his affection for the club, and at 21, he is well on his way to becoming one of the most lethal centre-forwards in European football.
