Schalke goalkeeper Manuel Neuer looks to be caught in a tug of war between Bayern Munich and Manchester United, after he starred in Schalke’s Champions League semi final loss last night.

Neuer won man of the match against Manchester United, and manager Sir Alex Ferguson said of the keeper’s performance, "he was fantastic. It was one of the best performances I've seen against Manchester United.”

But Bayern Munich have reasserted their desire to sign the star goalkeeper, saying they believe that if the price is realistic on the German, they will go for the kill.


"We have up until now not had any negotiations," Munich manager Uli Hoeness told Munich's TZ newspaper.

"That will now be addressed.

"We want Manuel, and where there's a will there's a way. But Schalke cannot now demand an astronomical price."

With sources such as the Daily Mail putting a price on Neuer of up to £22 million, Munich might not be able to compete with Manchester United for the goalkeeper’s signature.

"His value on the transfer market is already very high, I don't know if it can still go up,” Munich sporting director Horst Heldt told

"But watching this match [the Schalke v Manchester United Champions League semi final], I said to myself, 'Why sell such a player?'."
