Manuel Neuer has seen a drop in form in recent years after suffering a tough injury in 2017, and his best days look to be behind him.

Manuel Neuer is currently the top custodian in Germany. But despite his firm hold as the national team No. 1, the German’s position isn’t as safe at Bayern.

The latest news arrive, naming Arsenal’s Bernd Leno as Neuer’s potential successor.

According to Daily Mail, the 27-year-old’s performances have left the Bavarians impressed.

Bayern, on the other hand, are facing a management crisis after sacking Niko Kovac. Negotiations with another former Arsenal man, Arsene Wenger, are ongoing.

It’s hard to see Bayern’s captain Neuer being replaced at Bayern right now. Performances like the latest 4-0 win will just strengthen Neuer’s position between the posts. However, age is a factor that could play a role in the coming years at least.
