THE AUTOPSY: Marc-André ter Stegen to Bayern on Cards

Miranic  |  Controversy  |  6 Days Ago

As football season is heading towards its closure, the transfer rumors and speculations are pacing up each day. Joining the latest list of rumor is current Barcelona goalkeeper Marc Andre Ter Stegen who has reportedly made up his mind to ply his trade elsewhere from the Catalan giants.


Ter Stegen who is relishing a good time in La Liga with 13 clean sheets from 31 games is presumably miffed at not being the first choice goalkeeper for Germany, the position which is currently held by World Cup winner Manuel Neuer. Going by reports it’s becoming clear that Bayern Munchen is the club which German international is keeping this eyes transfixed at. 

The 26-year-old has so far been second choice keeper for the German national team, and while it’s looking highly unlikely that Joachim Low would make Ter Stegen a regular starter, the player has indentified the way that would improve his chances for the national side. A move away from Camp Nou to join Bayern Munchen in summer is what Barcelona keeper believes would be the right step for him to go ahead with. The move won’t only allow Ter Stegen to be closer to his fellow counterpart Neuer and raise the competitiveness amongst the two, but it would also provide him an opportunity to replace the countryman on club level, which would make it easier for Marc to find his way into national team as its regular starter. 


Though Neuer has been out of action for quite a long time before starting back in Bayern’s XI this season, his performances haven’t dipped by any means. For he has held 10 clean sheets in 25 games he featured in Bundesliga for the German giants. So whether the much sought move from Ter Stegen would work well and favour to fulfill his ambition for the country, Barcelona fans must be hoping to keep hold of Cillissen who would succeed the German international if he signs up with Bayern Munchen.
