The Germany international has a release clause in excess of €50m and earlier reports indicated it’s valid until June 15th.
It’s explained the London club want to wait for the Premier League to restart and also see where they will finish in the table. Would it mean another club could snatch the attacker from Frank Lampard’s side? Bild says ‘No’.
The report states his move to Stamford Bridge is ‘only a formality’, and Werner will sign a five-year contract worth €10m per season. This would make him the highest-paid player at Chelsea.
Bild’s report makes it clear Chelsea have just over a month’s time to pay Werner’s €53m clause.
