Tipped to be a future German number one, ter Stegen established himself as the mainstay between the stick for Gladbach in the past 24 months playing virtually every game possible, whilst he has also broken into the national team set-up although he remains second fiddle to the likes of Manuel Neuer.
The 21-year-old goalkeeper has been linked with a move to the Spanish giants with Victor Valdes set to leave the Nou Camp, and it’s been widely reported that the goalie has already begun learning Spanish.
Ter Stegen is expected to command a €10m transfer fee.
