Schalke stay suits Neuer

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has pledged to stay at Schalke should the club secure Champions League football for next season.

The highly-rated 23-year-old has been linked with big-money moves to Bayern Munich and Manchester United at times this season, but would be happy to stay at the Arena AufSchalke.

Schalke are currently second in the Bundesliga table.

"I have a contract here until 2012," Neuer told Bild.

"If we reach the Champions League, I will stand in Schalke's goal next season.

"Even if some people might not believe me, I do not pay attention to what happens at Bayern or Manchester United.

"Our priority is to get into the top three of the Bundesliga and make a name for ourselves in the Champions League.

"Our coach Felix Magath has given us the best possible chance to achieve that."
