The Bavarians signed Alexander Nubel from Schalke as Neuer’s potential successor in July 2020. However, Neuer’s contract extension will most likely persuade the player to leave the club in the summer. Nubel is currently on loan at Monaco, where his performances have improved gradually in recent months.

In a post-match interview after Bayern 4-0 win over Koln, the Germany captain was asked about his future.

“Bayern is an outstanding club,” he told Sport1.
