Timo Werner is apparently about to extend his contract with RB Leipzig. According to a report in the Bild, the 22-year-old striker is expected to double his salary to six million euros. The new contract is to apply until 2023.
“I hope that Timo will extend his contract with us by the winter break at the latest,” said coach Ralf Rangnick on Thursday. “We’ve been in talks for some time about renewing the contract. I am firmly convinced that Timo will also be in perfect hands with us in the coming years.
