And he said: “I’m very happy to be able to play for RB Leipzig again.

“I had a great time here between 2016 and 2020, when we performed brilliantly as newcomers in the league.

“It was a dignified departure for me to leave the club as record goalscorer, but that’s in the past now and I’m looking ahead, because both I and the club have developed in the past two years.”

Werner was Chelsea’s top scorer in the Champions League and only Mason Mount played more for the Blues in 2020-21.

But he’s never won over current boss Thomas Tuchel.

Werener, though, insisted: “I had two great years at Chelsea that I’m really grateful for and were crowned with the Champions League trophy.

“The experience to play abroad in a new league really helped me and my career.

“Now I’m looking forward to the new season with RB Leipzig and above all to meeting the Leipzig fans again, who mean a great deal to me.”

“We want to achieve a lot and of course, I want to become the first Leipzig player to reach the 100-goal mark.”
