Manuel Neuer and Bayern Munich target more success after thrashing out deal

By Staff Reporter

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has signed a new five-year contract at Bayern Munich.

The 30-year-old put pen to paper on a new deal yesterday that ties him to the Bundesliga champions until 2021.

Neuer, whose previous deal was due to expire in the summer of 2019, follows team-mates Jerome Boateng, Thomas Muller, David Alaba and Javi Martinez in committing his future to the club until 2021.

He said: "I feel at home at Bayern and am happy that we have now got everything sorted.

"I am looking forward to the future with Bayern."

Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: "He is the best keeper in the world and we are completely happy with his performances.

"We are happy that he has decided to stay with Bayern and sign a new contract." Carlo Ancelotti will replace Guardiola as Bayern boss in the summer.
