Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen says he’s very happy at the club but has confirmed talks over a new contract have been put on hold.

Contract extensions for Ter Stegen and Lionel Messi are reportedly at the top of Barcelona’s to-do list for 2020 as they aim to secure the futures of the duo.

Ter Stegen says the club have been in touch but things have stalled for the time being in an Instagram Live chat with his former club Borussia Monchengladbach.

“We have already had the first conversations,” he said.

“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’s current deal runs until 2022 and the lack of progress in contract renewal talks has already brought speculation other big clubs are taking an interest in his situation.
