Manuel Neuer signs contract extension through 2019

Manuel Neuer extension time! Everybody party!

Martin Rose

Do you like Manuel Neuer?

Of course you do. Even if you think you don't, you do. Stop deluding yourself.

Which is magnificent because today, the 28-year-old German wall of undeniable greatness has extended his contract with Bayern Munich through the end of 2019. The three-year extension gives Bayern Munich a stability in goal that few teams in the world can match. Also, that stability comes with one of the three best goalkeepers in the world which also helps a little (or so I'm told).

What's really nice is this news comes out today of all days. We've seen story after story about Bayern Munich's best and brightest moving this way and that, along with tales of discord and discontent under Pep Guardiola. That Manuel Neuer is going to be a Bayern Munich stalwart for five more years brings a measure of calm and relief to the the storm.

Now run out and find the nearest party and celebrate. Manuel Neuer is a Bayern Munich player for 5 more years!
