Marc-André Ter Stegen has signed an extension at Camp Nou, which will keep him at the club till 2022.
Barcelona have put the speculation surrounding Ter Stegen’s future to rest by extending his contract. There was much talk about the German international joining Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, however, he has now committed his next five years to Barcelona.
The German international arrived at Barcelona for £9.7 million from Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach in the summer of 2014. At the time of his arrival, he had a buy-out clause of £63.6 million inserted in his deal, which has now been raised to £180 million with the new contract.
