Goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has denied reports that he has already agreed to sign for Manchester City from Barcelona this summer.
The German joined the Catalans from Borussia Moenchengladbach in 2014, but has found himself restricted to Champions League and Copa del Rey games with coach Luis Enrique preferring Claudio Bravo for the club’s La Liga campaigns.
That has led to suggestions in the media that he may seek an exit from Barcelona this summer in search of more regular football, with Premier League sides Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United regularly linked.
Pep Guardiola’s imminent arrival at Man City has seen those links strengthen considerably, with some reports suggesting a deal was already in place for him to head to the Etihad at the end of the season.
However, speaking after Barcelona’s 2-1 Champions League win over Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, ter Stegen insisted his future remains very much uncertain.
“It’s not true that I have signed for Manchester City,” ter Stegen, who is contracted to Barca until 2019, told Al Prima Toque radio. “At the end of the season we will see what the situation is, and we can talk again then, OK?
“We have so many games at the moment, and that is all I can say [for now].
“For me the most important thing is to play well, and that we win all our games. Barcelona is an incredible team. I cannot say any more. We will see how it all turns out.”
