Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insists he is confident legendary goalkeeper and shock Chelsea target Manuel Neuer will sign a new deal.
There has been alot of transfer speculation in the media suggesting that Frank Lampard is keen to sign a new stopper in the summer transfer window as he has not been impressed by the performances of Kepa, who has struggled between the sticks.
Before coronavirus put a temporary stop on Premier League action, the boss had banished Kepa to the bench and promoted veteran keeper Willy Caballero to the starting XI in his place.
And that has led to some speculation in the media suggesting that we are ready to make a move and try to bring in a new stopper at the end of the season, to make sure that they have a more reliable stopper between the sticks for when next season starts
Neuer has spent almost a decade at Bayern Munich, playing close to 400 games for the German club and winning seven Bundesliga titles and the Champions League, but there are reports that Bayern have signed a younger stopper for next season, meaning that he may be forced to sit on the bench.
However, with his current contract set to expire in the summer of 2021, Bayern have opened up and announced that they believe the legendary German will not leave the club and will eventually sign a new contract at the club.
‘We both know what we have in each other,’ the Bayern Munich chief told BILD.
‘And under these circumstances I am optimistic that we will find a solution in the end and that Manuel Neuer will sign a new contract.
‘We have the world’s best goalkeeper and we have already won everything with him.’
It is a shame that we may never see the German in a Blues shirt, as he could have been a world class signing.
