Bayern closer to Neuer

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness claimed Saturday the Bavarian giants had agreed in principle a transfer fee with Schalke 04 for Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.
"Our management has managed to outline an agreement with Schalke 04, the question now is whether they will want to formalise the deal," Hoeness told German television channel Sky.
Schalke 04 face second division side Duisburg in the German Cup final next Saturday at Berlin's Olympic stadium and Hoeness speculated the deal may be finalised in the build-up.
"They have to decide whether or not it's a psychological advantage to announce the deal before the match," said Hoeness.
The 25-year-old is tipped to sign a four-year contract, worth an annual salary of six million euros, according to daily Bild.
Hoeness also admitted Bayern are interested in signing Bayer Leverkusen's Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal.
