Timo Werner: RB Leipzig striker will not play in Champions League ahead of expected Chelsea move | Football News

Timo Werner will not play in the rescheduled Champions League matches for RB Leipzig this August ahead of his expected move to Chelsea.

Lisbon is set to host the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final of the Champions League between August 12-23, with the Bundesliga side still involved in the competition following a 4-0 aggregate win over Tottenham before football went into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Germany international Werner is set to leave Leipzig and join Chelsea this summer, with a deal in principle already agreed.

Sky in Germany expects Werner to officially become a Chelsea player in the middle of July before taking three or four weeks off ahead of the 2020-21 season.
