Chelsea transfer boost as Manuel Neuer ‘refuses to sign new Bayern contract because 34-year-old wants five-year deal’ – The Sun

MANUEL NEUER has rejected a new Bayern Munich contract because he wants a five-year-deal, according to reports.

The news will come as a huge boost to Chelsea who are reportedly keen on signing the German if they can get rid of Kepa.

Neuer is already considering ditching Bayern because the German giants have a deal to bring in Schalke shot-stopper Alexander Nubel, 23, from next season.

But the Bundesliga champions offered their long-serving captain a new deal regardless.

However, 34-year-old Neuer has turned it down as he wants a contract that would see him play on until he is 39, according to German outlet Bild.

Bayern have offered the stopper a deal until 2023 but are wary of offering a longer term as that would see Nubel on the bench for the full length of his contract.
