Barca sign preliminary agreement with Marc-André Ter Stegen

Borussia Mönchengladbach keeper Ter Stegen
FC Barcelona have signed a preliminary agreement with Borussia Mönchengladbach goalkeeper Marc André ter Stegen.

According to the Spanish sports TV program ‘Futboleros‘ which is shown on Marca TV, the Catalan giants have reached a pre-contractual agreement to hire the services of Borussia Moenchengladbach’s young goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

According to information released by the Spanish television program, Marc-André Ter Stegen and FC Barcelona have already signed a preliminary contract agreement for the German goalkeeper to take over from Barca’s Victor Valdes in goal.

Ter Stegen, who is only 20 years of age, is the goalkeeper of Borussia Mönchengladbach and is considered one of the great promises on the international scene at the moment.

His name has not only been linked only to Barca and several other major European clubs have also inquired about the young keeper’s services.

Barca are looking to sign a new keeper in the wake of the news from Victor Valdés that he will not be continuing his career with the Blaugrana team.

Other keepers that have been linked with a move to Barca are Belgian star Thibaut Courtois, the 20 year old star who is on loan to Atletico Madrid from Chelsea who signed him last summer on a five year deal from Genk, Manchester United’s David De Gea, who last night put in a fabulous performance to stop Real Madrid scoring more goals in their Champions League clash at the Bernabéu which ended in a 1-1 draw and Liverpool’s Pepe Reina, who started out his career at Barcelona with Victor Valdés.

The young 20 year old German could be the perfect fit for Barcelona and ideal to fill the void that will be left by Valdés once gone. He’s 1.89 m tall which is a great height for a keeper and looks set to be one of Europe’s best stoppers.

Marc-André Ter Stegen has cemented himself as Borussia’s first choice keeper after having a great year in the reserve team during the 2010-2011 season in which Logan Bailly, who was their keeper at the time, held the team back with his erratic performances. Bailly was farmed out on loan to Swiss club Neuchâtel Xamax and Ter Stegen handed the coveted number 1 jersey.
