Timo Werner contract details at Chelsea revealed with staggering salary and huge bonus

Timo Werner is in line to pocket an eye-watering salary as well as a huge sign-on bonus when he joins Chelsea, according to reports. The German international will move to Stamford Bridge this summer after the Blues agreed to pay his £53million release clause at RB Leipzig.

Werner has been in prolific form this season, bagging 26 goals in 33 Bundesliga games and netting 32 times across all competitions.

That formidable hit-rate saw him attract attention from around Europe, with Liverpool initially leading the race for his signature.

Details of Werner’s lucrative contract have now been revealed in Germany, with Bild reporting the astronomical sums the new arrival is set to earn at Stamford Bridge.

The frontman is supposedly set to pocket a yearly salary of £14m, which works out at £270,000-a-week.

Broken down further, this sees Werner earn a staggering £38,500 every day.

There are conflicting reports on the wage structure at Chelsea, but such a hefty salary would definitely make the striker one of the best-paid players in west London.
