Bayern Munich stopper Manuel Neuer has ended talks that Chelsea could sign him by putting pen on a new deal through to the summer of 2023.
The 34-year-old stopper has been a colossus for the German giants, playing 375 games for the West London club since joining them from Schalke back in 2011.
He has helped the Bundesliga giants win 18 trophies in that time, including seven Bundesliga trophies, four German Cups and Champions League back in 2013, however, with his deal running down.
Kepa has the worst save percentage in the English top-tier and he wasn’t selected by Frank Lampard for four games in February when Argentine international keeper Willy Caballero was preferred.
Neuer emerged as an option for Chelesa, with the keeper’s current deal up in 2021. The German keeper has delayed signing a new deal with Bayern and could not agree on terms with the Bundesliga champions.
Lampard is believed to be open to selling the Spanish No.1, who was a record £71m signing from La Liga outfits Athletic Bilbao back in August 2018 – the most expensive stopper in history.
Now though Neuer has agreed to remain in Bavaria,
“Manuel is the best goalkeeper in the world and our captain,” said Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
