Werner urged to join Manchester United ahead of Liverpool

Timo Werner has lit up the Bundesliga for the last couple of seasons, and this season he has taken another step up in level, attracting plenty of interest, notably from Manchester United and Liverpool.


After his hat-trick in Leipzig's 5-0 win against Mainz, Werner reached his highest tally of goals in a single campaign so far, with 30 goals in all competitions.


Whilst Liverpool would seem like the more obvious choice when it comes to current success and form, former Manchester United and Manchester City player Owen Hargreaves has advised Werner against going to Liverpool.


Hargreaves feels that if he joins Manchester United, he would have a more crucial role in the side rather than if he joins Liverpool.


"Wherever he goes, he has to play. With the way United play right now, I could see him there. They need a number nine."


Hargreaves did add that he would be "perfect" for Liverpool, but "he's not guaranteed to start", with Liverpool being adamant on playing their front three of Mane, Firmino and Salah.


Chelsea have also been mentioned as a possible side to sign Werner, and Hargreaves claimed that it would be a "good fit" for Werner and his play style.


After scoring a hat-trick on Sunday, Werner became the first Bundesliga player to score two hat-tricks against the same opponent in a single season in 21 years, scoring a total of six goals and providing three assists against Mainz this season.
