Werner to Chelsea: “No done deal” says Managing director Mintzlaff

Amid Reports saying Chelsea have activated the release clause of Timo Wener, the Managing director of the German Side Oliver Mintzlaff says there is no formal agreement or conclusion in place that will see the German sign for the blues.

In addition, He said the Club are focused in qualifying for next season’s champions league and they have spoken to the Player about that ambition for the remainder of the Bundesliga season.

SOCCER PUNCH can confirm Mintzlaff spoke to Sky Sports Deutschland and he said: “We haven't had an exchange yet,” 

“Accordingly, we have nothing to report. Timo Werner is a player for RB Leipzig. He signalled a few weeks ago that he was busy with a transfer. Until now nothing is done.

“We are concentrating on the final sprint in the league. We want to qualify for the Champions League. That is the only thing we are currently discussing with Timo. 

“It was important for us that we extend the contract with him. We did that last summer because of course it is important for our young club that no player moves on a free transfer. 

“Of course, there was this exit clause that we put in the contract to give him the opportunity to take the next step.

“Now Timo is sitting in the driver's seat, not us anymore. So far, he has not drawn upon the clause, nor has any club sent us a transfer contract.”
