The club’s legendary goalkeeper, Sepp Maier thinks Bayern Munich will look very stupid, if in the end desperate to release Neuer in the upcoming transfer market.
Over the past decade, Manuel Neuer has been a mainstay of Bayern Munich under the crossbar. As from the time he was purchased from Schalke 04 in 2011. It’s just that the contract at the Allianz Arena will expire in the summer of 2021.
This fact makes the player’s future a byword for European media. Moreover, until now both parties have still not reached an agreement on a new contract. The negotiation process between the Bayern camp and Neuer is not proceeding smoothly, because of the current Coronavirus pandemic.
The speculation was further strengthened by the fact that Bayern Munich had recruited a new goalkeeper, Alexander Nubel. The young German goalkeeper is considered one of the ideal successors for Neuer at Bayern Munich.
This situation is believed to make Chelsea try to steal the opportunity to get service Manuel Neuer in the upcoming transfer market.
Related to the news, Bayern Munich legend Sepp Maier requested that Manuel Neuer be defended. According to him, stupid if the club finally let go of the German national team goalkeeper.
“I think they are very stupid if you release Neuer. Bayern will regret this decision in the next few years. Why can’t Neuer play at the highest level for the next five years? He is still in shape, “Maier told Abendzeitung.
Not only because Neuer is still in very good shape, but also because until now there is no goalkeeper who is better than him.
“At present there is no better goalkeeper than Neuer in the world, and there will not be in the next five years,” he said.
Manuel Neuer himself is reported to have denied the issue of leaving. He is even ready to extend his contract at Bayern Munich but on several terms.
The first requirement is for him to remain Bayern Munich’s main goalkeeper next season, while the other requirement is for the club to recruit top players to be more competitive on the European stage.
