Man Utd can offer Timo Werner four things that Liverpool can’t in summer transfer window

Manchester United fans would love the club to sign Timo Werner, with the RB Leipzig star one of the deadliest players on the planet. The Germany international has long been on the radar of Liverpool, however, and seems to prefer a move to Merseyside this summer. Express Sport now looks at four things United can offer Werner – that their Premier League rivals can’t.

Poster boy

United can dangle the carrot of being the club’s poster boy to Werner should they choose to go after the RB Leipzig star.

Bruno Fernandes has dazzled since his January arrival and Paul Pogba, on his day, remains one of the best midfielders on the planet.

But United’s best poster boys over the years have always been forwards.

They can promise Werner the chance to become the club’s Robin van Persie, the last striker to score 30 goals in a single season for the Red Devils.

And that could be too good to turn down.

Regular football

At Liverpool, Werner would find it incredibly difficult to get into Jurgen Klopp’s side.

That’s through no fault of his own. With Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane – the Reds are well-stocked.

At United, it would certainly be easier.

Werner would represent a substantial upgrade on Anthony Martial having scored 11 more goals than the France international this season.

Mason Greenwood and Martial would represent fierce competition – but Werner would be fancied to start.

Favourite position

If Werner was to play for Liverpool, he’d likely have to put up with being played out of position.

Part of Salah, Mane and Firmino’s magic is that the trio are all able to interchange with each other, capable of filling in all over the Reds’ attack.

But Werner is a No 9 and that wouldn’t suit him.

At United he’d be able to stay in that position.

Both Marcus Rashford and Daniel James are both capable of doing defensive duties – which would allow the Leipzig star to stay up top in his preferred position.

Eyewatering wages

Liverpool are among the clubs who could be the most-affected by the current coronavirus crisis.

And that means they wouldn’t be able to offer Werner massive wages – while United can.

Ed Woodward has warned it won’t be business as usual when it comes to transfer fees.

But the Red Devils have financial muscle that only other clubs across Europe can dream of.

That could help them sign Werner. It’s not the worst ace to have up your sleeve…
