Manuel may well finish his career at Bayern Munich.

Neuer’s signed a new deal keeping the German with the title-collecting giants through the 2022-23 season, when he’ll be 37 years old.

Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge called Neuer “the best goalkeeper” in the world in making the announcement, and he certainly has the accolades to make the claim.

Reared at Schalke from a very young age, Neuer made the first 203 appearances of his career there before moving to Bayern in 2011. He’s made a further 374 with Bayern.

He won the German Cup with Schalke in 2011, beating Duisburg, but really started his trophy haul at Bayern. He has seven Bundesliga crowns to go with four more German Cups, a Champions League, and a World Cup.

Neuer also converted a penalty in the 2011 Champions League Final, scoring in Bayern’s failed bid to beat Chelsea in Munich. He finished third in 2014 Ballon d’Or voting behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
