Germany international denies pre-existing deal with Catalan giants.
The agent of Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Marc Andre Ter Stegen has denied that there is a pre-existing deal in place to take him to the Nou Camp and is instead about to review his current contract at Borussia Park, Sky Sports reports.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move to the Spanish champions for some time, and the speculation intensified over the weekend as talk of Victor Valdes’ openness to a move to French moneybags Monaco highlighted their need for a new long-term number one.
It has been suggested that a deal between the two was already in place and Ter Stegen would be moving to Catalonia next summer, but his representative, Gerd vom Bruch, has denied those claims by saying they were well wide of the mark.
“It is pure speculation,” Vom Bruch told the Rheinische Post newspaper, although he did confirm the 21-year-old was a man in demand.
“There are two or three really good teams that are interested in Marc.
“And there is also Borussia. We are going to talk about a contract extension with Gladbach.”
Ter Stegen first broke into the Monchengladbach side back in 2011 and has gone on to make 96 appearances for the club during that time.
Pepe Reina is another player who has emerged as a target for Barcelona, and who has also moved to deny rumours of a move already being agreed.
