Speculation before the January transfer window had the German international as a target for Premier League giants Manchester City, though those reports were quickly waved away by coach Pep Guardiola.
And now Neuer has spoke about his position at the club, insisted that he would have rejected the chance to move had it come up, and is happy at the club, where he hopes to bring home more silverware over the years to come.
The 27-year-old goalkeeper has been at the Allianz Arena since making the move from Schalke in 2011, and last year helped Bayern win the Bundesliga, German Cup, UEFA Champions League and Club World Cup.
“It would be great to play for this club for a long time,” Neuer told Munchener Merkur.
“There is no reason to move clubs as it would be weird not to want to play for the best club in the world.
“I am a Bayern Munich player and I will stay on a player of Bayern Munich.”
Neuer is an established first team player and has said that he would always be ready to captain the side, though he feels that Philip Lahm is better positioned to lead proceedings.
“If the team or the manager want me I would not reject the armband to be captain of Bayern Munich at any point in time,” he said.
“Still, I prefer this job to be done by an outfield player.”
