Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen 'on verge of signing new five-year contract' after Chelsea 'made offer'

According to reports, Chelsea made an offer to sign Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen who is on the verge of signing a new five-year contract at Barca. 

The goalkeeper, who has two years left to run on his current deal, has been linked with a move away from the Nou Camp and the Blues are said to have made an offer for the shot-stopper.

But Mundo Deportivo report that Ter Stegen will commit his future to Barca with the two parties close to agreeing a new long-term contract after an initial stumbling block over wages.

Frank Lampard is thought to be in the market for a new goalkeeper after Kepa Arrizabalaga's suffered another disappointing season at Stamford Bridge.

Bayern Munich had also been linked with the German goalkeeper but agreed a new deal with Manuel Neuer in May.

Ter Stegen is said to be happy at the Catalan club and does not want to play for anyone else.

The 28-year-old has been the No 1 shot-stopper at the Nou Camp since joining Barca in 2014.

He has won 12 trophies in six years including four LaLiga and Copa del Rey titles and the Champions League.

While Ter Stegen looks to be staying at Barca, others could be on their way out with the club looking to raise money to fund transfers this summer.

As many as 12 players have reportedly been put up for sale including Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele.

Former Liverpool star Coutinho has been strongly linked with a move back to the Premier League with Arsenal one of the clubs thought to be interested.
