Bayern Munich’s 33-year-old goalkeeper Manuel Neuer says he will leave the club if they don’t sign better player, according to his agent.
The goalkeeper has spent eight years with the Bundesliga side. He has won seven Bundesliga titles, five DFB-Pokals and a Champions League crown with Bayern Munich.
Although Neuer’s contract with the club is until 2021, his agent, Thomas Kroth says that Neuer will consider leaving to achieve his dream of winning the Champions League.
“He wants to win Euro 2020 and he wants to win the Champions League again,” Kroth told Suddeutsche Zeitung .
“Manuel is success-oriented. My impression is that the gap to the top four English top teams is already serious and the Munich squad is currently not yet as competitive or set up to tackle Manuel’s goals seriously.
“When he realises that Bayern are responding, then he will probably blossom again. He does not want to retire in 2021. Now he is in the phase in which he has to decide: how will things progress in the future?
“Signing a contract extension and ending his career at Bayern is of course the obvious option, but it’s not the only one.”
“Much has been said and interpreted against him,” Kroth added. “The bottom line was: ‘He’s 33 years old now and he’s starting to break down’. Many have interpreted his achievements as having lost the extraordinary and invincible ability.”
