Manchester United could use the Coronavirus pandemic to hijack a move for Liverpool target Timo Werner, according to German publication Bild.
Werner has been scoring goals for fun in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig, and has also been doing so on the international scene with Germany.
Given his work rate, eye for goal and ferocious pace he has been a target of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp with strong rumours of a switch to Liverpool happening this summer.
However, Bild have reported that due to the Coronavirus pandemic there is now uncertainty around the move.
This has lead interest from Liverpool’s great rivals Man United and their manager has opened talks in an attempt to hijack the potential move.
At just 24-years-old Werner has scored 21 goals in just 25 league appearances this term and with a £52million release clause could prove a bargain signing.
