​Chelsea target Neuer hopes to resolve Bayern Munich contract problems

Chelsea target Manuel Neuer does not want to leave Bayern Munich.

He is in a contract standoff with the club, and his present deal ends in 2021.

But Neuer is not eager to leave the German champions, even though the 34-year-old wants a long term deal.

Sky in Germany suggests a move to Chelsea is not likely, as issues between Bayern and Neuer are resolvable.

The only thing that may change the circumstances is the emergence of Alexander Nubel.

The Schalke 04 keeper joins Bayern in for next season, and would give stern competition to Neuer.

If he is second choice at Bayern, Neuer may change his mind about leaving.
