Timo Werner has rubbished claims that he could move to Bayern Munich after changing his agent.
The forward returned to the Chelsea line-up against Southampton and found the net on his return as Thomas Tuchel’s team went onto win the game 3-1.
Even though he’s been disappointed by his lack of playing time at the club so far this season, Werner says that he is fully focused on getting back into the team.
“The last few weeks have been difficult at Chelsea. After many years, I was suddenly a little behind and had to fight my way again. A career always goes up and down, never steadily upwards. But you learn to deal with it,’ he told Express.de, via the Metro.
“I have to bite into it again, that challenges me. Of course, I would like to enjoy more minutes, so I give my best in training.
“I don’t know anything about the deadline. Of course, I can’t be satisfied if I don’t play. Of course, I want to be a regular in a big team.
‘But I’m not saying that if I don’t start 10 or 15 games before Christmas, I really want to leave. Things happen relatively quickly in football. I have to look at the bigger picture to make my decision.”
However, since he recently decided to change his agent to Volker Struth, who has close ties to Bayern Munich, Werner has been linked with a move to the Bundesliga giants.
But Chelsea fans don’t have too much to worry about as he’s shut those rumours down.
The transfer window is over and the season is well underway

“I didn’t choose Volker because he has some players and the coach in Munich. I repositioned myself with him to get a new perspective on my career. This should not be interpreted as a hint for or against Bayern,” he added.
“It just worked out well between us. It wasn’t about which club might be of interest to me in the future. It was just about the interpersonal basis. The cooperation so far has been very good.”
Werner will be looking for more regular game time when he returns to Chelsea after the international break, just as Blues fans will be hoping he can continue his recent good form.
