The Daily Express says City boss Manuel Pellegrini feels his side can secure Neuer – seen as the best keeper in world football.
City owners would have to part with a minimum of £40million to secure the 6ft 4in Bayern Munich star. Insiders say he will be offered a weekly wage of £105,000, which would make him the highest-paid stopper in football.
It is likely City will make their move in the next 12 months as Neuer, 28, will be examining his deal with Bayern.
