Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is on the verge of signing a new deal with the defending Bundesliga champions.

Sport1 understands that the German international will extend his current deal by “three more years”, but the experienced Neuer has remained coy on the subject, even if team-mate Jamal Musiala has now backed him to keep going.

“There’s nothing to announce at the moment,” the 35-year-old said.

“Bayern is an outstanding club. We made history during my time here and we keep trying. And of course I want to be part of that.”

An extension for Neuer is likely to spell the end of Alexander Nübel’s time with the Bavarians. According to Sky Deutschland, Nübel – who is on loan at AS Monaco – will leave on a permanent deal in the summer in search of more playing time.

This opens up the door for a new deputy to Neuer at Bayern, with Arminia Bielefeld stopper Stefan Ortega heavily linked with a switch – although the player’s agent has hinted that playing time could be an issue there too.

Neuer, who joined from Schalke in 2011, has made 459 appearances across all competitions with Bayern Munich (per Transfermarkt).
