Timo Werner has admitted that he could have joined Liverpool or Manchester United prior to agreeing a move to Chelsea.

Whilst Chelsea won the race for his signature, Werner has admitted that he could have moved elsewhere had he wanted to, but that he does not regret his decision one bit.

"Inter, Manchester United and Liverpool wanted me? Yes, I could have gone to these teams too," Werner told Sportbuzzer.

"The best clubs fought for me.

"The entire Chelsea package in the end, however, turned out to be the best in my career. Money played a marginal role.

"For me, money was never a decisive factor, otherwise I could have gone to China.

"Chelsea is a leading club in European football. There is a team of great quality, we want to get to the top. I don’t regret my decision for even a second."

"It was clear that all parties - Chelsea, RB and my side - should and must settle this.

"Of course I tried to keep out of the Champions League issue as much as I could because it was clear that I would have to hurt one side.
