Liverpool have had £10 million bid rejected for Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, according to the latest reports.
Despite his age, German star is considered as one of the most talented goalkeepers of modern football. However, he is still second choice goalkeeper at Camp Nou, so he might be willing to leave the club.
The 23-year-old shot-stopper has been heavily linked with Liverpool in recent weeks, but The Reds have seen their first bid rejected by the Catalan giants, as Luis Enrique’s side want at least £20 million for skillful keeper.
Merseyside Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is a great admirer of Germany International and it is believed that he promised Ter Stegen regular first team football, the promise sounds little bit strange as German head coach given new five-year deal to Simon Mignolet who is currently Premier League giants first choice keeper.
Stegen joined Barcelona in 2014 year from Monchengladbach for a fee of €12 million and his buy-out clause is set at €80 million. This season German star played 15 matches for Barcelona and conceded 21 goals. His current deal with La Liga giants runs until 2019 year.
At this time of the year it’s really hard to separate nonsense from credible stories so we have to wait and see if Jurgen Klopp is willing pay £20 million for former Borussia Mönchengladbach man.
