TIMO WERNER has admitted he is torn between Manchester United, City and Liverpool ahead of a reported £51million summer switch.
Speculation over the RB Leipzig star's future has refused to go away with Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona also linked.
Speaking ahead of Tottenham's visit in the Champions League on Tuesday, Werner described the number of options ahead of him.
A move to Manchester City or Liverpool, is tempting – as is staying in Leipzig and "making something great".
However the striker could even opt for a fallen giant "which need some big changes" and "are not able to compete on the highest level any more".
He surmised: "For me, Manchester United is one of these teams."
Premier League leaders Liverpool are reportedly leading the race to sign the German, who is available via his £51m release clause.
Werner called the Reds "the best team in the world" when discussing the rumours last month.
Do I want to be part of a new team, to build up something new, or do I want to stay at my team and make something great?"
But the prospect of dislodging either Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah or Roberto Firmino from their impressive attack could prove to be a major obstacle.
He continued: "At this time in professional soccer there are two different variations.
"The first is to be part of a team like Liverpool or Manchester City. They have a good working team. The teams have also great coaches.
"But this is the question: do you want to go to that kind of team, because the situation is already that hard for each member and you want to be a part of it? That's one point you have to look at.
"So at this point of my career I'm asking myself: do I want to be part of a new team, to build up something new, or do I want to stay at my team and make something great?"
Werner has netted 88 goals in 149 appearances since joining Leipzig in 2016.
As well as looking good for a place in the Champions League quarter-finals, they are competing for the Bundesliga title but now sit five points off leaders Bayern Munich following a succession of draws.
