The 24-year-old is under contract at Schalke until the end of the 2011-12 season, but speculation has been rife that Bayern see him as the ideal replacement for their 26-year-old keeper Hans-Jorg Butt.

And Neuer himself was coy about a potential move, saying "I don't believe so" when asked if a summer move was out of the question.

"We have to see how things progress," he added. "I am not putting myself under any pressure, I have a contract until 2012."

Scalke boss Felix Magath remains determined to hang on to his keeper for the moment, however.

"I don't know why I should sell Neuer before 2012," he told Bild.
