Manuel has an estimated fortune of around $45 million – and the trend is rising. As a result of a recent contract extension (2020) with FC Bayern Munich, Neuer now receives a salary of 18 million euros per season up to and including 2023.

This also makes him the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world, although he received a salary from Bayern of 20 million euros including the contract up to 2025 demanded, an agreement was reached in the middle.

Manuel Neuer Expensive Divorce and New Girlfriend

At the beginning of 2020, it became known that Manuel Neuer and his wife Nina had separated. The couple tied the knot in May 2017, but the once happy marriage only lasted until the end of 2019. Despite an existing marriage contract, the divorce was probably not cheap for the footballer and was completed at the end of 2020. 

We’re reckoning on just under €10m for Nina, including some real estate, but that still leaves an incredible fortune for the goalkeeper. He has allegedly been in a relationship with handball player Anika Bissel since March 2020. She is said to have already moved into his villa on Tegernsee.

The Career of Manuel Neuer

Born on March 27, 1986, in Gelsenkirchen, world goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has always been a sports enthusiast. But in contrast to many of his football colleagues, he did not commit himself exclusively to football at a young age but played and still plays tennis passionately.

At the age of five, Neuer joined FC Schalke and regularly played his way up in the youth teams. When it finally came to a professional contract in 2005 and Neuer had made the leap from amateur to a professional footballer, he played most of the time in the Oberliga and only sat on the bench for two Bundesliga games. 

This rather inconspicuous professional career start was to change completely a year later when he first became number 2 in goal and finally number 1 under Mirko Slomka.

As number 1, Neuer was able to convince with his keen perception, his modern game, and his long ball throws, which made him voted the best German goalkeeper in the 2006/07 season.

Already in the 2007/08 season he was in goal for all Bundesliga games and was convinced with his talent. He was well paid for this, after all, he earned around 3 million euros a year at FC Schalke, which was supplemented by advertising income. Compared to Neuer’s starting salary at FC Bayern Munich (approx. 7 million per year)The salary may seem low, but at least Neuer was just 21 years old at the time.

An early contract extension from April 2016 to 2021 made him the top earner alongside Thomas Müller with an annual salary of 15 million euros and since the next contract extension in 2020 with an annual salary of 18 million euros he is number two behind Robert Lewandowski. The FCB is thus allowing its assets to continue to grow.

Overall, the 2007/08 season was a very successful one for Neuer, because that was the first time he was invited to a fitness test for the German national team. Since 2010, under coach Joachim Löw, he has also been able to impress in that team and delivered a strong performance at the 2010 World Cup, although he did not get a chance in the match for third place.

Manuel Neuer Bayern Munich Eera

Around that time, FC Bayern Munich under President Uli Hoeneß also became aware of Neuer and asked FC Schalke to transfer him to the traditional Bavarian club for a fee of 22 million euros + success clauses. After intensive negotiations, Neuer was transferred to Bayern in 2011, although this was partly criticized beforehand on both sides. Due to some success clauses in the transfer agreement, FC Bayern has to transfer up to 11 million more to FC Schalke 04.

But relatively quickly, Neuer was respected by FC Bayern Munich fans for his exceptional performance, with which he set new records and proved that he really was and is one of the best active goalkeepers. In the 2011/12 season, for example, he defended a goal for 770 minutes in a row without an opponent scoring a goal. At the same time, he repeatedly initiated fruitful attacks on the opposing goal with his throw-ins, which is why he quickly became an indispensable part of the club.

In the meantime, Neuer can look back on a considerable number of fans and also uses his good image for charitable purposes. He founded the Manuel Neuer Kids Foundation, into which he paid €500,000, among other things.

After FC Bayern Munich’s treble victory in 2013, Manuel was voted world goalkeeper alongside world footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. He was also honored with the Golden Glove for Goalkeeper of the Tournament by winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Since Audi is one of the main sponsors of FC Bayern Munich, Neuer also drives an Audi. He opted for an Audi RS6 Avant with 560 hp, available for a list price of €107,900.
