Last-minute interest in Schalke goalkeeper Neuer

British tabloid The Daily Mirror claims that Barcelona is interested in Schalke 04 goalkeeper Manuel Neuer (23).

Barcelona reportedly wants to give Barcelona goalkeeper Víctor Valdés some competition this season and would already have made tentative enquiries about the German keeper.

The club would now plan to move quickly for Neuer and is believed to going to make a firm bid before the summer transfer window closes later today. Schalke would nevertheless not be willing to let the player leave cheaply and the German club would be asking a transfer fee of around 14 million euros for their goalkeeper.

Manchester United is also said to be interested in Neuer. With Edwin van der Sar approaching the end of his career, Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson would have stepped up his search for a new goalkeeper, with the German being one of the candidates. Ferguson has nevertheless said that he will not make any further signings before the transfer window closes.

yes please valdez can be mistakeful
i have watch him play most of last season and i think he is top class and a great young back my opinion best german keeper at the moment

he could be the first choice gk why would he sit on the bench

since barca renewed valdes theres no point in buying a high caliber gk just as backup

and u gotta be dreaming to get this kid for only 14m

This is very stupid and i believe it's not the true. Valdes is good keeper, he just signed new contract, he's a chilad of Barca and will be first option for many years. He had some bad moments, but he's better and better and now is one of the best, especialy in important games.

Few years before i have doubt about Valdes, now i belive him comletely, and also Neuer is very expensive goalkeeper, it would be so stupid to buy him for sitting on the bench, Pinto is good back up.

Pep knows it very well and i don't believe in this stupid story, it' almost like buying Agguerro for 50 millions for making a competition with Messi, and one of them must sitting on the banch when other play. So, so stupid article.

One of my favorite goalies but I think Sergio Asenjo is a lot more promising and 10m cheaper. Asenjo is the next Casillas I think he is already as good as Neuer plus 3 years younger but since we can't get him, I would love to have Neuer who in my opinion will be the next Kahn.

guardiola wants only 2 keepers. wats the point of getting one more???total bull

hamad_ali said...

teams would die to get their hands on this kid and you guys are talking like he's mino or olzabal .
this guy is the next freaken oliver khan , i'd pick him over pinto in a split second .
for me valdes should remain the first choice but with a younger keeper to provide him with a challange , but like the others said , this report is from daily mirror so i say BS .

alexxx666 said...

I dont think this is bullshit like all of u say. Valdes renewed his contract for a very high salary and Barca had no choice but to agree cause had they not then we would have had to pay alot for a replacement so this is the way they are going about it. As for Neuer he is an amazing keeper and only 22y old, younger than all the other German propects...

what if it IS true? he is a good keeper, and it is not a problem to have a third keeper int he squad is it? he can play all spanish cup games, taking pinto's role from last season, while pinto picks up jorquera's. and does anyone remember two years ago, when chelsea had both keepers injured? they had a third choice goalie to call upon. what do we do in such a situation? call up mino/oier for a stretch of games? i doubt it. i would be delighted to see this move come through, though it would add more fuel to real madrid's arguments that we spend as much as they do.

tero said...

I think that's a bargain for Neuer...he's very good.Asenjo is no longer an option,that's a shame because we should have bought him

there are a lot of good german goalkeepers but not one of them is showing good performances CONSTANTLY.

the best goalkeeper for barca would be wiese from germany. he can still learn a lot and he is very very talented.

Marc said...

I think that Shakthar keeper, Pyatov, is very good. Not that we need one.

groga said...

German (and English) goalkeepers are for some reason terrible. Except Kahn, who was great.

Anonymous said...

groga...congrats for the dumbest comment in human kind history...thats quite an accomplishment.

Germany has always had great keepers and they have 3-4 great keepers now, more than any other country in the world.

please don't post if you are so clueless about something.

groga said...

I think they are terrible, you think they are not. It's all about opinions.

"the best goalkeeper for barca would be wiese from germany. " Are you kidding ? I have seen Wiese many times and he is one of worst goalkeepers I have ever seen in my life . He makes too many STUPID mistakes !!

Bojanibra said...

the best keeper we could get other than asenjo is neuer,he is very good and talented.dont know why some people is naming that shit adler.he is not even good to joguera.get this guy if posible pls.

The bad mistakes that Valdes makes once in a while are what Weise does every game.

creus said...

A goalkeeper is the last thing we need at this moment.

Manolo said...

I think we should go for this guy Guillerme "memo" Ochoa!
He's also young and very very good!
He's playing for America (Mexico)

Just look at these vid.
