Annoyed to see the German media publish almost every day new information about his future at Bayern Munich, Manuel Neuer spoke in the daily Bild. He denies in particular wanting a salary of 20 million euros per year.
He comes out of silence. While the German media assure that negotiations for an extension of contract are stalled between Manuel Neuer and Bayern Munich, the 34-year-old doorman made a point of clarifying things in an interview given this Saturday to the daily Bild. He notably denied the information that his agent had asked for a five-year lease and a salary of 20 million euros per year for his protege.
He wants “a win-win situation”
“These figures are simply wrong. And I can say clearly that in the discussions I had with Hasan Salihamidzic (Bayern sports director) and Oliver Kahn (member of the board), we have always been flexible regarding the duration of the contract “, he reacted.
Arrived at Bayern in 2011 after revealing himself at Schalke 04, Neuer will be at the end of the contract in June 2021. “I want us to be in a win-win situation and in which everyone is happy. I want to do try my best to be there for the team and do everything we can to be as successful as possible with 100% passion, “added the Mannschaft goalkeeper. He especially pushed a little rage against the rumors and leaks that feed the press daily.
Annoyed by leaks
“All the conversations I have had here have always been conducted with great confidence. Nothing ever came out. But today, the details of the discussions in progress are constantly in the media, and often they are not even Of course it annoys me. I’m not used to that at Bayern, “he said. He also took advantage of this interview to explain that he was not at all annoyed by the signing of Alexander Nubel, who will join Bayern at the end of the season from Schalke.
“He’s a good goalkeeper, no doubt. I understand the transfer, even if we already had a solid number two with Sven Ulreich,” he said. If he is therefore considered as a future replacement by Neuer, Nubel has in theory been recruited with a view to taking over in the near future.
