“It’s also a mark of his wonderful character, because he’s said ‘I want Bayern Munich forever’,” Bayern Munich Chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told FIFA. “I’d like to thank Manuel Neuer very warmly for this.”

The 28-year-old goalkeeper had joined the Bavarians from Schalke 04 back in 2011. and since then has won two Bundesliga titles, a UEFA Champions League, a DFB-Pokal title, a DFP-Supercup and a Club World Cup with the club.
