Goalkeeper Ter Stegen has revealed he is already involved in contract renewal talks with Barcelona but that everything is placed on hold at the moment.

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen insists he remains ‘happy’ at the club despite putting contract renewal talks on hold.

Since joining the Catalan giants from Borussia Monchengladbach back in 2014, the German has established himself as one of the world’s top goalkeepers.

Ter Stegen’s current contract expires by the end of next season and the 28-year-old has been linked to Bayern Munich, amid doubts over Manuel Neuer’s future in Germany.

Despite the uncertainty over his own future, the shot-stopper feels now is not the right time to talk about contract renewal, due to the global pandemic.

“We have already had the first conversations,” Ter Stegen said during an Instagram Live with former club Borussia Monchengladbach as cited by Goal.

“But as I said, we have parked it. There are much more important things.

“I am very happy here and the sporting situation is good, the team is doing well. What more can I ask for?”

Ter Stegen recently turned 28 and was hailed as the ‘best goalkeeper in the world.’
