Marc-Andre ter Stegen In No Rush To Sign New Barca Contract

Marc-Andre ter Stegen has revealed that he has discussed a new deal with Barcelona but insists he will not be rushed into signing anything just yet.

The German goalkeeper has made it clear that he is happy at the Camp Nou and will make a decision on his future when the time is right.

Ter Stegen’s current deal expires in the summer of 2022 but he insists there is no panic over committing to anything new.

“I have two years left on my contract, my family and I are very happy here, we are at home,” Ter Stegen told Mundo Deportivo.

“The intention is to continue. At the moment there are conversations, but loose ones, because there is no hurry on my part.

“I am very focused on my work, we have some very tough weeks ahead and we want to win.

“I leave the whole contract subject to my agent, who is the one who is dedicated to it and who informs me of everything.”

Continued success on the field will make it easier for Ter Stegen to sign a new contract. He has already collected four league titles, the Copa del Rey as many times and a Champions League crown during his time in Catalunya.

The intention is to add to that medal collection in 2020, with Barca chasing down further glory at home and abroad.

Ter Stegen added: “Every year the Champions League is in focus, it is a very good competition that we all have the hunger to go far in and achieving something that is very difficult.

“We have a game that will be very difficult but we know that we are going to put everything we have to get a good result and finish the work at Camp Nou.

“Let’s go step by step as that has always helped us.”

Barcelona, who have moved back to the top of the Liga table, will take in the first leg of a Champions League last-16 encounter with Napoli on Tuesday.
