Manuel Neuer has admitted he is ‘annoyed’ that details surrounding his contract talks with Bayern Munich have been leaked in the media.

Manuel Neuer has admitted he is ‘annoyed’ details over his contract talks have been leaked
The goalkeeper said suggestions he wants a five-year contract are untrue and ‘make no sense’
‘All conversations that I’ve had here since then have always been conducted with great confidence. Nothing has ever leaked out,’ he told SportBild.
‘But now there are details from the current discussions in the media that are often not even correct. That annoys me. I don’t know that at FC Bayern.
‘I want to play as long as I’m fit. But the most important thing for me is trust. It’s clear to me that it’s utopian to want a 5 year contract. I’m 34 and can’t predict how I’m going to be at 39. That’s why what has been publicly suggested, makes no sense at all
The 34-year-old said this has not happened before and talked about the importance of trust
‘It has always been important to me to be able to work trustingly with the employees in management positions – as loyal as I am to the club as a player and captain.
‘I want a contract where FC Bayern and I have a win-win situation that everyone is happy with. I want to perform,, be there for the team and do everything to ensure that we have maximum success – with 100% passion. The conditions must be right, that’s what it’s about.
‘I’m not in the talks, that’s what Thomas (my agent) does. That’s why I can’t and don’t want to point my finger at individual people. But the group of people there is manageable.’
The German’s contract is set to run out in 2021 with Chelsea thought to be interested in a move
The German’s contract is set to run out in 2021 with Chelsea thought to be interested in taking him to Stamford Bridge should he be unable to agree a new deal with Bayern.
Neuer joined Bayern from Schalke in 2011 and has gone on to win 18 trophies during his nine years at the club.
The World Cup winner is renowned for his ‘sweeper’ style and ability to pick a pass with his impressive distribution.
Bayern signed Alexander Nubel in January as a long-term replacement for Neuer and the 23-year-old will join up with the squad when his contract with Schalke ends in the summer.
