When asked about his future, Werner told Sport1: “If you take Germany, it would be a lie to say that you would not like to play for Bayern.


“It would be a lie to say in England you’d not like to play for Manchester United or Manchester City.

“Spain – Barca or Real. There are great clubs in every league. Italy or France would not be my leagues, but the other three.

“There are so many clubs you’d like to play for. I don’t want to tie myself down.”

Werner has also won 10 caps for Germany, scoring seven times, and helped them lift the Confederations Cup last summer.
