Last week, Bild announced an agreement between RB Leipzig and Chelsea for the transfer of Timo Werner, eager to join the Blues. Eight days have passed and then nothing. The transfer is struggling to finalize. According to The Athletic, the very slow progress of the file is only due to the coronavirus pandemic. The German international has played 29 matches with 11 goals so far, and he cannot join Great Britain due to the strict sanitary rules put in place by the Bundesliga.
To avoid any risk of contamination and a further cessation of the championship, the Bundesliga players must limit their contacts with the outside. In this case, the Chelsea doctors could go to Leipzig to meet the goal scorer. But this solution is also impossible because on their return to London, they should observe a period of isolation of two weeks when the English championship will have resumed. For the file to be finalized, Chelsea and Timo Werner will therefore have to wait for the end of the Bundesliga on June 27 or the lifting of the quarantine put in place across the Channel.
