​Kahn backs Chelsea target Neuer to stay at Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich and Germany legend Oliver Kahn believes that Manuel Neuer should turn down Chelsea.

The Premier League giants are linked with the Bayern no.1, as he faces a contract stand off with his club.

And even though Bayern are set to sign Alexander Nubel in the summer, Kahn thinks that Neuer should stay put.

"In general, as I have shown myself, goalkeepers can of course play into old age, but maintaining a high level is a great challenge," Kahn told German publication Bild.

"In Alexander Nubel, we get a highly-talented goalkeeper, who has the chance to develop and learn behind Manuel Neuer.

"Not many have the opportunity to work with the best goalkeeper in the world every day."
