Barcelona are reportedly in talks with goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen to extend his contract at the Camp Nou.

Sport report that club officials have begun negotiations with the goalkeeper’s representative to offer him a new deal that runs until June 2025.

The extension would mean Ter Stegen has the longest contract of all the current first-team squad and confirms his status as one of the team’s most important players.

There are not expected to be any problems with the negotiations as Barca attempt to secure the Germany international’s long-term future.

Ter Stegen has developed into one of the world’s best goalkeepers at the Camp Nou, and there have been rumors of interest over the Christmas period.

Mundo Deportivo have reported that Juventus, PSG and Bayern Munich are all pretty keen on the goalkeeper which may have speeded up Barca’s desire to extend the 27-year-old.
