Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has reportedly signed a new contract with the club. The new deal will keep him at Camp Nou until 2025.

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has extended his stay at Barcelona according to reports.

During the lock-down, the 28-year-old revealed he was in contract talks with the club but was not ready to advance further at that point in time. He would rather wait until things were more settled.

Through all of this, Ter Stegen was subject to numerous transfer stories as well. Amidst reported interest from Bayern Munich, the latest was interest from Chelsea as Frank Lampard eyed up a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

However, it would appear the German snubbed off any potential exit and only has his mind at the Nou Camp.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano reports that Ter Stegen has signed a new five-year deal with Barcelona, keeping him at the club until 2025.

Considering the goalkeeper is 28 at the moment, it could well mean he plans to spend the latter years of his active career in Spain.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claims Ter Stegen is claimed to see his future only at Barcelona, and doesn’t want to play for anyone else.

Since joining the Catalan giants from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2014, the German goalkeeper has made 234 total appearances, keeping 100 clean sheets in that time.

Ter Stegen will make his 235th outing for the club on Saturday, as Quique Setien’s side take on Napoli in the second leg of their round of 16 tie.
