Marc-André ter Stegen could leave Barcelona with lack of first team action

Barcelona and Germany goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen has demanded a starting place, otherwise he will look for a new club, according to Süddeutsche Zeitung.

The 24-year-old had conversations with the Catalan club on Tuesday, where he stated that he would seriously consider an offer from a “non-Spanish club” if he was not guaranteed to be first-choice goalkeeper over Chilean Claudio Bravo.

Spanish newspaper Sport state that Manchester City have been interested in ter Stegen for some time, particularly as he fits into Pep Guardiola’s style of play better than Joe Hart.

However, the newspaper claims the only way to purchase the German is by paying the transfer fee stated in his contract, which stands at €80 million.
