Actually, the topic should have been over long ago, but Bayern Munich’s captain Manuel Neuer has not yet extended his contract, which expires next year. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic takes a stand.

On the home straight: The contract extension of national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer at FC Bayern Munich is getting closer. “I’m optimistic that Manu will play for FC Bayern in the next few years. I can say that much: We’re on the home stretch,” said sports director Hasan Salihamidzic on Sunday in the Sport1 “double pass”. The 36-year-old Munich captain is “an important player and the key to success”.

Annual contracts only: CEO Oliver Kahn recently stated that Neuer should only extend his contract, which expires in 2023, by one year. At the beginning of May, crowd favorite Thomas Müller had already extended his working paper with the German record champions by twelve months until 2024.

Gravenberch there soon? After signing right-back Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax Amsterdam, Salihamidzic also confirmed negotiations with his team-mate Ryan Gravenberch on Sunday: “We’re in good talks there. We want to strengthen the team – selectively, at the top and also across the board.”
