Bayern Munich manager Flick assures Chelsea target Neuer of starting spot

Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick has assured Manuel Neuer of his starting spot next season.

Alexander Nubel will join Bayern from Schalke this summer, with some suspecting he could take the number one spot.

Neuer is out of contract in 2021 and negotiations have stalled, but Flick insists he wants the Germany international as his starting goalkeeper next season.

He told Kicker: "Manuel Neuer is clearly our number one, nothing will change in the coming season. Alexander Nubel knows that."

Flick added: "Alexander Nubel will have the same trust and the same appreciation as all other goalkeepers and players in our team.

"We want to develop him further, but it is also clear that performance is what counts at Bayern. And Sven Ulreich is doing really well at the moment."

Neuer has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer if he cannot agree a new contract with Bayern.
