Goalkeeper Alexander Nübel, currently awarded from FC Bayern to AS Monaco, emphasized that a return to Munich is not an option for him should Manuel Neuer extend his contract as expected. “If Manuel is still there, I think it won’t work anymore,” said Nübel as part of a media round, in which Alexander and Goal took part.
Then you have to deny “with FC Bayern how we find the best solution, but I think if Manu is still there, it makes no sense that I come back.” At the moment there is no exchange, “the focus of Bavaria is certainly on other players.” One will certainly sit down to see “what the best solution for me and Bavaria is”.
Nübel is borrowed to Monaco until the end of next season, while FC Bayern is trying to extend the contract with national goalkeeper Neuer beyond 2023. An early farewell from France after this season is not an issue: “I didn’t even deal with that. A lot would have to happen.”
In 2020, the 25-year-old from FC Schalke 04 joined the record champion, but in his only season in Munich was only in four competitive games in the goal. It has been indicated several times that Nübel’s contract was anchored in the contract, including consultant Stefan Backs to the SID: “It should be clear to everyone that Bayern Munich also submitted a conclusive concept, otherwise Alex would not have agreed.”
Nevertheless, there was no way to get past in a comparatively insignificant play, so that he chose the way to the neighboring country: “For me this is not a conflict, for me the focus here is on Monaco. But of course: I get alongside what in Munich happens. A giant advantage is that things are a bit quieter here. I enjoy that. “
That became Bavaria’s goalkeeper hopes
Nübel: DFB? “No exchange and no hope”
From the Bayern’s point of view, the contract of Neuer is a “logical step” to keep the top performers of the past decade. Another loan does not want to rule out Nübel, but this is “difficult”. Instead, he is “basically for the fact that I generally put a different way”. He tends “for a real decision”. For a general return to Germany in the future, he said in a meaningful way: “I can imagine coming back to the Bundesliga if the club is not called FC Bayern.”

There is currently no contact with the DFB, which is why the chance of jumping on the World Cup train is relatively low: “There is no exchange and actually no hope. I have dealt with 0.0 percent.” Nübel is not irritated, because: “We have great goalkeepers in Germany, all of whom play at a high level.”
