NEUER DENIES GUARDIOLA APPROACH

Manuel Neuer says there has been no contact from Manchester City but admits to being pleased by the reported interest from the Premier League club.

The Germany international has been linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium to link up with former Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola, with Claudio Bravo having been dropped from the first team following a string of unconvincing displays.

Neuer is happy to hear about the speculation but has stressed that there has not been any approach from City and that he is happy at the Allianz Arena.

“There was no contact and, as you know, I’m happy and satisfied here and I’ve just extended my contract, actually,” he told a news conference ahead of Bayern’s Champions League last-16 first leg against Arsenal on Wednesday.

“I’m glad that there’s speculation and talk about it. Pep still has my phone number but he hasn’t called me, so everything is alright.”
