FC Bayern has pulled off a huge coup, locking down the world’s best goalkeeper until 2021.
Why is he the world’s best?
Look no further than the save he made against Arsenal’s Theo Walcott in the Champions League earlier this year.
That’s a goal 10 days out of 10 on any other keeper.
Bayern Munich confirmed the news on their Twitter account earlier today.

If Bayern Munich is awash in glory
Dortmund feels like they can’t catch a break
Despite being close in the tables, Dortmund’s miles apart from Bayern.
Bayern’s like the big brother that Dortmund will never quite measure up to, no matter what they do.
Say what you will about Dortmund, but their fans are a pragmatic bunch. The magnitude of Neuer’s extension is not lost on them.
Exasperated Borussia Dortmund supporter “Cotyrobisz” took to the internet a cathartic outburst,
“FUCKING BAYERN EXTENDING ALL THEIR IMPORTANT PLAYERS’ CONTRACTS TILL FUCKING 2021. FUCK!”
On the flip side of the coin, Neuer’s extension is just more good news for Bayern fans, whose club can do no wrong. They’ve been on a tear, securing their best players with long-term contracts.
Bayern fan “Arian00” said what everyone was thinking,
“BOATENG, MÜLLER, ALABA, MARTINEZ AND NOW NEUER.. FUTURE LOOKING GOOOOOOD!”
The future is looking bright indeed for Bayern Munich.
