Barcelona consider selling Ter Stegen to Bayern Munich
With Barcelona needing to reduce their wage bill, could Marc-Andre ter Stegen succeed Manuel Neuer at Bayern Munich?
Barcelona are considering selling Ter Stegen to Bayern Munich to help their financial position, according to Todo Fichajes.
The report says the European champions consider Ter Stegen a perfect replacement for Neuer, 34, and could make an €80 million move at season's end.
Ter Stegen, who is contracted until 2025, and Neuer have been widely considered two of the world's best goalkeepers in recent seasons.
In last season's Champions League, Neuer had a save percentage of 77.1 – which was ranked behind only Andre Onana (80) and Alex Meret (79) of goalkeepers who played at least five games. Ter Stegen (67.5) ranked 16th.
Neuer made 28 saves and Ter Stegen 27, which ranked fifth and sixth respectively.
