Manchester United have expressed interest in signing Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer from Schalke 04, the Bundesliga club's president said on Wednesday.

"An international agent has approached me and informed me that Manchester United are interested in Neuer. If we get a written request from Manchester we will look at it," Clemens Tonnies told the Bild daily.

It is not the first time that Neuer, who was Germany's man between the posts in their highly successful 2010 World Cup campaign, has been touted as a possible replacement for the retiring Edwin van der Sar at Old Trafford.

Neuer, who turns 25 later this month, is under contract until June 2012. He has also been linked to a move to German giants Bayern Munich.

"Manuel Neuer is the best goalkeeper in the world for me. If he is available, you have to get him," Germany legend and ex-Bayern president Franz Beckenbauer said last week.

Bayern were due to face Neuer's club Schalke in the semi-final of German Cup on Wednesday. In the final on May 21 the winner will take on second division MSV Duisburg.
