Barcelona goalkeeper Ter Stegen signs new contract – with £156m release clause!

Date Posted,May 28, 2017

Barcelona have slapped a whopping £156million release clause in Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s new deal.

The goalkeeper has committed to the Nou Camp until 2022 after penning a new contract, ending his transfer links to Manchester City and Liverpool.

Ter Stegen became Barca’s No.1 last season replacing Claudio Bravo, starting 36 games in La Liga and nine in the Champions League, being selected ahead of Jasper Cillessen.

The 25-year-old signed for Barcelona from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach in 2014 and has won nine trophies since his move.

A Champions League triumph, two La Ligas and three Copa del Reys are included in that total.

He recorded a better save success rate than any other La Liga goalkeeper who started 10 or more games last season, stopping 79.2 per cent of efforts fired towards him.

A club statement read: “Barcelona has reached an agreement with the player Marc-Andre ter Stegen to extend and improve his contract until 30 June 2022.

“His buy-out clause now stands at 180 million euros. His new contract will be signed on Tuesday 30 May at 1.30pm CET at the club offices.”
