Chelsea took advantage of the negotiated contract deal between Manuel Neuer and Bayern Munich to welcome the 2014 World Cup champion to the Premier League.
Chelsea is about to welcome super goalkeeper Neuer, determined to stop MU in the top 4
German media recently published remarkable information about the future of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. After the incident that Neuer refused to extend the contract with Bayern because the claims were thought to be beyond the ability of the “Gray Lobster”, Chelsea took the opportunity to approach the 2014 World Cup champion.
33-year-old Neuer is out of contract with Bayern in 2021 and he recently negotiated an extension with the defending Bundesliga champion. However, the negotiations were broken by Neuer proposed a long-term contract, and Bayern did not want to sign a long-term contract with a player who was over 30 years old even in the position of goalkeeper “long life”.
It has recently been reported that Bayern also considered that Neuer could leave, so they have already targeted his successor. Alexander Nubel is being selected for this role, he will leave Schalke 04 to move to Bayern at the end of the season on a free basis and Bayern has no plans to loan Nubel on suspicion that Neuer could leave as soon as this season ends.
And Chelsea has entered this story. According to Bild newspaper in Germany, coach Frank Lampard has been informed of the situation of Neuer and he did not miss this opportunity, relaying information to the Chelsea leadership to prepare for approaching the German goalkeeper. Lampard has started pushing Kepa up to the bench earlier this year to use Willy Caballero due to the Spaniard’s poor performance.
Although it is not known whether Kepa will be sold or not, Lampard still needs a good goalkeeper to help Chelsea compete for the title or at least maintain the top 4. Strong teams in the Premier League have good goalkeepers. such as the Brazilian duo, Alisson & Ederson, of the top two teams Liverpool & Man City, or David De Gea of MU and even Kasper Schmeichel of Leicester, whose goalkeeper face is being evaluated as Chelsea‘s current weakness.
Not many other clubs are interested in Neuer despite his high level, Barca is still worried about the future of Marc-Andre Ter Stegen while Real Madrid has Thibaut Courtois, and PSG and Juventus are both satisfied with their own goalkeeper. Therefore Chelsea will have a great opportunity to own him, and maybe this will be a landmark deal under Lampard.
Besides Neuer, a number of Bayern players are also rumored to be leaving the club this season, including Thiago Alcantara and David Alaba. Alaba was supposed to be a City goal but refused to go to England because he wanted to go to Spain to play.
