Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been heavily linked with a move away from Barcelona amid doubts over signing a new contract.

The goalkeeper's delay in extending his current deal with Barca has led to several elite clubs monitoring his situation at the Camp Nou.

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are reportedly determined to sign the former Borussia Mönchengladbach star, who has been with the Spanish giants since 2014.

According to sources, Bayern see Ter Stegen as the ideal replacement for the 33-year-old Manuel Neuer, although Los Cules will be keen on holding on to one of their most valuable assets after Lionel Messi.

Reports in the English media have also noted Chelsea's interest in the German shot-stopper, after Kepa Arrizabalaga lost his place in goal earlier this year, with Frank Lampard choosing Willy Caballero for some vital matches in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League, however, the 27-year-old's deal with the Catalan club does not expire until June 30, 2022.

Despite the difficulty of renewing Ter Stegen's current contract, it is evident that the Blaugrana will most likely accept a substantial offer for the talented goalkeeper.

Barcelona are pleased with his services and want him to stay as they are keen to tie him down until 2025, but the fact remains that an agreement has still not been reached, meaning a few clubs in Europe will have hope of being able to sign the Germany international Ter Stegen.
