Ter Stegen has been in talks with the club for renewing his contract and is close to finalizing it, according to Mundo Deportivo.

FC Barcelona’s star goalkeeper has been out of action since August after undergoing a surgery for an injury to the patellar tendon in his right leg. He is yet to play a game this season and it is expected that the club and the player will reach an agreement over a contract renewal before Ter Stegen returns to the pitch.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Gerd vom Bruch, Ter Stegen’s agent, has resumed talks with Barcelona for the renewal of the German goalkeeper’s contract and everything indicates that it will be finalized soon.

The talks began when the 2019/20 season was still going on. It was interrupted by the pandemic and had many ups and downs but now it seems that both the parties will reach an agreement soon.

Marc André ter Stegen has been with Barcelona for 6 seasons now, and with this contract extension, he will remain with the Blaugranas till 2025. His current contract expires in 2022.
