Wycombe Wanderers Bid For World #01 Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer
World-class goalkeeper Manuel Neuer could be swapping Germany for England as reports surface of a potential loan move to EFL League Two’s Wycombe Wanderers. News broke after sources close to the club’s management began spreading reports that the World Cup winner was very-much interested in the switch following the return of pre-season action which saw Wycombe travel to Slough for a goal-less draw.
The Chairboys are in the market for a backup keeper to cover #01 Scott Brown in case of injury and with the German shot-stopper clearly interested in swapping Munich for Wycombe, the loan deal is looking a realistic shift.

Own Goal spoke to club mascot Bodger who told us “It’s no secret that Manuel’s keen on the move and as long as the lad’s alright with being number 2 behind Scott then the change makes sense for me. Neuer is a promising talent and looks like he’s got what it takes to compete in the league. The owners are stepping things up this year behind the scenes and are laying down some serious investment to make us contenders. The bosses got me a Rolex for my birthday last month and are sending me and all the ground staff to Ibiza for a mad one on a team-building trip – buzzing mate.”
Bayern Fan Lars Schulz told Own Goal “Manuel has been a fantastic asset for the club but when you’re a goalkeeper that’s capable of competing for the Balon d’Or, people are obviously going to show interest. We’ve done well to keep him here for so long but when a club like Wycombe Wanderers come along we’re powerless to compete with the kind of contracts they can offer.”
Dubbed by many pundits as the world’s finest goalkeeper, Neuer is currently serving as captain at Bayern Munich. Known for his aggressive sweeper-keeper style the German star came through the ranks at Shalke before getting his switch to takeover duties at Bayern in 2011 where he’s become a dominant force between the sticks.
