The 28-year-old Germany international's previous deal was set to expire in 2016 but on Friday the club announced news of Neuer's extension on their official website.

Chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was delighted to share the news, saying Neuer's decision was "astonishing and top class", coming so quickly on the heels of the club's heavy Champions League loss to Real Madrid in midweek.

Rummenigge added: "It's also a mark of his wonderful character, because he's said 'I want Bayern Munich forever'. I'd like to thank Manuel Neuer very warmly for this."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
