Spanish radio Cadena SER understands that Barcelona have agreed a summer move for Borussia M’gladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
The Catalans have been on the lookout for a new shot-stopper ever since Victor Valdes revealed that he would leave the club at the end of the season.
They have since been linked to a number of high-profile players, but Cadena SER claims Barcelona have decided to go with ter Stegen.
According to the same source, the Catalans have agreed to pay €8 million for the player’s services, although the fee could rise to €10 million depending on performance related bonuses.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen has come through the youth ranks at Borussia M’Gladbach and went on to make no less than 82 Bundesliga appearances for die Fohlen.
The 21-year-old has three Germany caps to his name, but his place at the 2014 World Cup is in doubt after he was overlooked for the October qualifiers.
