Manuel Neuer responds to Man City links

It seems inevitable that Manuel Neuer was going to be linked with Manchester City sooner or later.

The Bayern Munich goalkeeper, who worked under Pep Guardiola at the Allianz Arena, would be an obvious solution to his former manager’s woes in that position.

Despite Claudio Bravo’s poor form since joining from Barcelona, Joe Hart is not likely to stay on at the Etihad, and Willy Caballero is out of contract this summer.

Neuer is on course to win the Bundesliga title with Bayern, while City aren’t guaranteed any silverware this year.

That is not the main factor affecting the Germany international’s decision, however, as he insists Guardiola’s new club have never even approached him.

“There was no contact and, as you know, I’m happy and satisfied here – and my contract I’ve just extended actually,” he told a press conference.


“It honours me that there’s speculation and talk about it.

“Pep still has my phone number – but he hasn’t called me, so everything is alright.”

Real Madrid’s Keylor Navas is another potential option for City, according to the Manchester Evening News, but that would be a strange move if Zinedine Zidane doesn’t deem him good enough for the Los Blancos first team.
