According to media reports, Manuel Neuer is on the verge of extending his contract with Bayern Munich. However, as Kicker now reveals, that deal is far from over. Accordingly, there is still a need for clarification between the two sides.
As Commerce magazine reports in its current issue, Manuel Neuer’s extension has not yet been completed. In addition to the salary, the term of the new contract is also discussed between the club and the player.
The goalkeeper is currently restricted to record holders until 2023. Bayern Munich would like to keep the 35-year-old for another year until 2024. Neuer will be “only” 38 at this point, which is not the age at which the goalkeeper ends his career. However, according to reports, the DFB star would like to try it out at FCB.
Recently, reports circulated that the FCB captain should get a two-year contract. At the same time, it would frighten Alexander Noble, who recently confirmed that a return to Munich is only one option for him if he plays regularly. Nobile is currently on loan to Monaco until 2023.
Ortega is still a problem on Säbener Strasse
In addition to Neuer, the Munich team is also planning to change the position behind the German international. According to Kicker, informal talks have taken place with Stefan Ortega about the possibility of changing the new number 2 in the summer. Other clubs are also interested in German-Spanish. The first goalkeeper from Arminia Bielefeld will be available on a free transfer in the summer.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich has yet to contact Sven Ulrich about a possible extension. The 33-year-old has an expiring contract on Isar and has made a strong impression as a new replacement in recent weeks.
