If the striker indeed wants to leave, RB Leipig want to cash in on him in the summer. According to Bild, 'Die Roten Bullen' are ready to go into negotiations with Bayern with an initial asking price of €60 million.
However, as Werner's contract is due to expire in 2020, RB Leipzig are aware it might not be possible to get that much for him and aim to agree on a transfer fee of at least €40 million.
RB Leipzig want to avoid losing Werner on a free transfer in 2020 by all means, and Bild understands that the club have made it clear to the player and his representative that he could get to spend a year in the stands in case he neither extends his contract nor leaves the club in the summer.
