Chelsea news: Timo Werner makes RB Leipzig Champions League decision | Football | Sport

Leipzig have just three games left in their league season – at home to Fortuna Dusseldorf tomorrow, at home to Borussia Dortmund and then away to Augsberg on June 27 on the final day.

Chelsea will not finish their league schedule until July 27, and then will face Bayern Munich in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie in August, three goal don from the first leg

The German international, who has scored 31 goals for Leipzig this season, under Fifa rules cannot play for Chelsea until the start of next season.

But by declaring that he will effectively stop playing for Leipzig at the end of this month, he reduces the risk of any injury that could jeopardise the deal – and gives himself more time to rest and prepare for the new campaign with Frank Lampard’s team.
