Barcelona 'confident Chelsea target Ter Stegen will sign new deal'

Barcelona ‘confident of tying down Chelsea target Marc-Andre ter Stegen to a new contract’ with terms until 2024 on offer for the keeper

Barcelona are confident that they can persuade Marc-Andre ter Stegen to sign a new deal at the Nou Camp amid interest from Chelsea, according to reports in Spain.

The German goalkeeper is said to be in talks with his club over a new deal that would see him commit his future until 2024, and Barca believe he will sign on the dotted line, Spanish outlet AS claims.

Ter Stegen’s current contract expires at the end of next season and the player’s representatives have had at least four meetings with the club – who see him as a huge part of their future, the report adds.

Ter Stegen signed his last new contract in 2017 after becoming the undisputed No.1 following Claudio Bravo’s move to Manchester City the year previous.

Talks over his latest new deal began in December, and Barcelona are relaxed because they believe his release clause of 180 million euros (£157million) will put off any potential bids.

However, the figure has not resulted in the German failing to attract interest, with the Sunday Express claiming Frank Lampard’s Chelsea are keen to bring him to west London with Kepa Arrizabalaga failing to impress and ter Stegen reportedly having fallen out with Lionel Messi.

However, his entourage are said to be annoyed by rumours about talks with other clubs because they say they are not true.

Nevertheless, he report claims that ter Stegen is happy at Barcelona however and his priority is to stay at the Camp Nou.

Despite his desire to earn a wage package in line with the club’s other top stars, the Catalan giants are expected to bow to his demands although they have little room to manoeuvre when it comes to their wage bill.
