Bayern confirms: Make the forbidden switch

Bayern Munich has secured the future of målmandsposten.

The 23-year-old Schalke-keeper and captain Alexander Nübel switch to the German team for the summer, writes Bayern Munich on its website.

Nübel switch on a free transfer when his contract expires this summer - and he has got a five-year agreement with Bayern Munich.

With the shift, he goes in the footsteps of Manuel Neuer, who in 2011 made the exact same number to let the contract run out, when he switched from Schalke 04 to Bayern Munich. The two coming from summer to compete for space in the cage - with less Manuel Neuer has other plans.

It falls hardly on good ground, in Gelsenkirchen, to the captain, switching to the rival, and the management of Schalke 04 was either not specially sensitive, since the a couple of weeks ago came out on the Nübels kontraktsituation.

After all the conversations, as we in recent months have had with Alexander Nübel and his adviser, we are not quite surprised by his decision, and we respect the course. But understand it we do not need, says Jochen Schneider, sporty, responsible at Schalke, in a comment on the club's website.

Alexander Nübel has been the regular man on the U21-national team in recent years, but is expected to be able to challenge Marc-André ter Stegen and Manuel Neuer on the A-national team in the future.
