Ter Stegen receives a million dollar offer that will decide his future


Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been in the news lately regarding a possible departure from Barcelona, however, the rumours have now been put to rest.

The players of Barcelona had resumed their training on the 23rd of May at the Joan Gamper training ground while maintaining the Spanish government protocols of carrying out physical activity in groups of 10.

With the Spanish top-flight division been handed the green light by the government to resume the competition from the 8th of June, the coaching staff at Barca continue to prepare their squad for the remaining 11 games of the season as they top the table with a two-point lead over Zinedine Zidane‘s Real Madrid despite dropping points in both the El Clasico’s.

However, the focus of the media still remains on the German goalkeeper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, despite publicly admitting on an Instagram live session that he would continue at the Camp Nou despite all the rumours. There were strong rumours in the past that the former Bundesliga man had fallen out with the board due to being heavily underpaid and had received lucrative offers from Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus who were willing to make the German international the world’s best-paid goalkeeper.

Don Balon claims that despite the strong rumours of Ter Stegen leaving the Catalan city, Josep Maria Bartomeu and his team of officials have put the rumours to rest by offering their saviour a new five-year contract along with an increase in his current salary that would make him the second best-paid player at the club below Leo Messi.

Despite securing the services of the German goalkeeper, the future of Neto continues to be uncertain as the player has only played one game so far for the Blaugrana this season and is considering a move away for the Camp Nou to get more playing time under his belt.

Next on the line for the board is to offer Lionel Messi his last contract renewal before the player would have to hang up his boots for good.
