Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is rated among the best goalkeepers in the world and it’s no surprise Chelsea have been linked with the 34 year old goalkeeper after reports emerged contract talks between Neuer and Bayern Munich have stalled.

Reports emerged contract talks stalled after Neuer demanded a five year contract from Bayern Munich.

Neuer reacted furiously to the leaks, fuelling speculation he could leave Bayern Munich for Chelsea.

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has now revealed the situation has been resolved internally.

“Manuel knows that we really appreciate him,” the director told Welt Am Sonntag.

“We have clarified the position internally, and since nothing else has become known since then, I assume that we can move on.

“I played with Oliver Kahn. I know how much a world-class goalkeeper gives to a team. Manuel is a world-class goalkeeper. He is highly valued in our club so I hope that we can extend our contract with Manuel.”
