Manuel Neuer, will he still be at Schalke next season?

Share this history on :
Manuel Neuer (25) is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. In fact many claim he is the second best, after Casillas. He is currently the captain of the German club FC Shalke 04, where he has been playing for almost 20 years! Over the last year there has been many rumours regarding a transfer for the German international. Manchester United and Bayern Munich are assumed to be his next employer, unless he wants to stay with Schalke in Gelsenkirchen.

Neuer has been playing for Shalke for many, many years going up the clubs youth ranks. In 2009 he won the UEFA European under- 21 football championship with the Germany national under-21 football team. But he’s real breakthrough did not com until the summer of 2010, during the world cup. He played every match for Germany in South Africa, except the bronze finale (due to illness).

Both Bayern Munich and Manchester United will be looking for a new goalkeeper this summer. Bayern and United are clubs with many resources. If they want, it should be possible for at least one of the clubs to seal a deal with Schalke and Neuer himself. At the moment it seems likely that he is on his way to the Allianz Arena to play for Bayern Munich.
So far Neuer has denied all rumours, however he has declared hat he has made a decision on his future. So one can only speculate.
I for one look forward to the summer transfer window.
