Today’s newspaper covers are all about Barcelona trying to secure themselves for the future with Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s renewal standing out as the absolute priority for the Catalan club. But the future just might also be in La Masia as well.
Mundo Deportivo have gone with the German goalkeeper for their cover, saying ‘Priority renewal‘, which is quite self-explanatory. The key idea is to ensure their no.1 goalie stays at the club for many more years.
They have reportedly contacted the player’s entourage, who are ready to negotiate the new contract, and both parties seem to be optimistic regarding the deal being struck sooner rather than later.
Sport, on the other hand, are dealing with the whole squad rebuild rather than focusing on one man only like their counterparts. Their cover states ‘Operation renew‘ and has Barcelona’s young talismans gracing the photo.
And while yes, Ter Stegen’s renewal is the absolute priority, Barcelona also want to rebuild the whole squad and are willing to bet on the La Masia gems to carry them into the future.
Of course, there are also potential exciting new signings that could arrive at the club in the near future who seem good enough to start the whole renewal process. The board has seemingly come to its senses and understands the core of the squad is getting far too old.
It’s time to think about the future. Better late than never, huh?
