Man City plot a £40m world-record bid for Bayern Munich goalie Manuel Neuer [Sunday Express]

The Sunday Express have a fanciful tale on the backpage of their Sunday edition.

England’s number one Joe Hart was once against on the bench during Man City’s 1-1 draw at Southampton as Costel Pantilimon remained the first choice in goal, however according to the Express, Manuel Pellegrini is looking for a new goalie option although.

Hack James Desborough vomited three paragraphs with no quotes or other substantiating evidence on the backpage of the tabloid, saying:

Manchester City are plotting a world record-breaking transfer move for German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. 

City boss Manuel Pellegrini feel his side can secure Neuer – seen as the best keeper in world football. 

City owners would have to part with a minimum of £40million to secure the 6ft 4in Bayern Munich star. Insiders say he wll will be offered a weekly wage of £105,000, which would make him the highest-paid stopper in football. It is likely City will make their move in the next 12 months. 

So, who is holding their breathe then?
