Manuel Peter Neuer (born 27 March 1986) is a German professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for and captains both Bayern Munich and the Germany national team. Neuer has been described as a "sweeper-keeper" because of his unique playing style and speed when rushing off his line to anticipate opponents; he is also known for his quick reflexes, excellent shot-stopping abilities, strength, long throwing range, command of his area, and accurate control and distribution of the ball.

Neuer began his football career at his hometown club Schalke 04. He made the professional debut in 2006 and immediately became first-choice goalkeeper in his first season. With Schalke 04, he won a DFB-Ligapokal title in 2005 and a DFB-Pokal title in 2010–11. He signed a five-year contract for Bayern Munich in 2011. He didn't win any major trophies in his first season with Bayern, although the team reached the final of the 2011–12 UEFA Champions League. Since then, he has won 21 major trophies with Bayern, including eight league titles and two Champions League titles.

Neuer was selected as Germany's number one goalkeeper for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. During the group stages, he only conceded a single goal. He provided the assist for Miroslav Klose's opening goal against England, winning 4–1. In the 2014 FIFA World Cup, he was pivotal in his team's campaign on the tournament to finally win the World Cup title. With his great performances, he received a Golden Glove award as the best goalkeeper in the tournament. Neuer also earned a nomination in the top three of 2014 FIFA Ballon d'Or, finishing third in the voting behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He has been appointed as a captain for both Bayern and Germany national team following Philipp Lahm's retirement in 2017.
