The numbers of the transfer of Timo Werner for Chelsea

Chelsea have thrown the house out of the window to take over the services of a Timo Werner who will pocket much more in the London capital than was suspected a priori. In addition to ingesting a total of 53 million euros in the accounts of the RB Leipzig, equivalent to the termination clause established in the contract of the German international, Werner will charge 15 and a half million for each of the five agreed seasons, a salary that makes him the highest paid player in the blue squad ahead of Kante and Kepa (both 8.7 million per season).

In addition, the German scorer received a single payment amounting to eleven kilos, simply for stamping his signature under his new contract at Chelsea. Leipzig, a team sponsored by Red Bull, will also take advantage of a player he signed with Stuttgart in 2016 in exchange for 14 million. Of the 39 million capital gains it generates, it will have to pay 8.2 kilos to Stuttgart due to an agreed clause in the event of a future sale and for training compensation.
