It goes without saying that this could indeed be the biggest signing of the window as Barcelona reportedly advance in negotiations with Ter Stegen over his contract renewal.
For quite a long time now, the two parties have been trying to reach an agreement. However, despite the German wanting to stay at the club, this hasn’t been an easy task. Ter Stegen wants to feel valued and just like Lionel Messi, wants a great project.
Of course, in recent years, Barça haven’t exactly been the most dominant force but the new updates have been positive. It does seem like there has been a breakthrough in the talks.
Miguel Rico reported that Barcelona and Ter Stegen have finally advanced in the negotiations for the new contract. The goalkeeper’s renewal would be set until 2025 and this is indeed what both parties want.
Needless to say, the German has been a standout performer for many years now and despite not being an official captain, his presence speaks for itself. Now, all that needs to be done is to put the pen to paper and finally seal the deal.
If this really does go through, it could be Barcelona’s biggest victory in the summer transfer window.
