Real Madrid are reportedly set to pass up on signing RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner because of his special health condition.
Barely half an hour into RB Leipzig’s first UEFA Champions League game against Besiktas, Timo Werner had requested to be substituted.
He complained about the noise levels in the Vodafone Arena, and even tried using ear plugs but they didn’t help.
He has gone for tests, and has been wearing ear plugs in some games since.
Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu is one of the biggest in Europe, meaning he’d certainly face high levels of noise if he were to play there regularly.
Marca reports: “With 11 goals in 18 games this season, Real can understandably consider Werner a good option for January however their concern may end up costing the 21-year-old a switch to Spain.”
