Manuel Neuer went down on the history of both Bayern Munich and the German National Team in the last decade thanks to his performances. However, in the last few seasons, for many, the goalkeeper hasn’t shown the same quality.
With that, the Bavarians went after Nübel, Schalke’s young goalkeeper, while Neuer was speculated in several clubs.
However, after many controversies and problems, both player and club reached consensus and signed a new contract until 2023.
The situation seemed to have no solution, but now in addition to the return of the Bundesliga, the Bayern fans can celebrate the permanence of one of their great idols. The goalkeeper is the main player in the current squad, having 375 games.
The goalkeeper has already won the German Championship seven times, as well as four German Cups and three German Super Cups. In European Competitions, he already won the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup.
For the National Team, Neuer was one of the main players on the World Cup 2014, in Brazil, where Germany won its 4th World Cup trophy. Many said that he was the most important player for the title.
Since he left Schalke 04, Manuel Neuer became one of the main goalkeepers around the world. He was also between the three best players in the world, fighting for the Baloon d’Or against Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Apart from that, he also showed the world a new way of playing. For both Bayern and Germany NT, Neuer was part of the defensive system during counter-attacks from their rivals. Nowadays, most parts of the teams around the world search for a goalkeeper that can play like that.
His permanence on Bayern brings happiness for most fans of the team but also ends up with the plans of several clubs that were waiting to get the goalkeeper maybe for free. In the end, I believe he made the best choice. I mean, when we think of Manuel Neuer, we automatically think of Bayern Munich.
