Ter Stegen said in an Instagram live interview on the channel of his former club Borussia Mönchengladbach that negotiations with FC Barcelona about a new contract are currently completely on hold.

“We had one, two or three talks with the club and then decided that we should first shut down the situation,” said the Barcelona goalkeeper on Instagram.

The reason that the contract talks are interrupted is the coronavirus crisis, says the 28-year-old: “There are currently much more important things than a contract from me.”

But interrupting the negotiations would not mean that he would ask too much or that he would not renew his contract, which expires in 2022, according to iSports football live data API.

“We are super happy here, the sporting situation is good – what more do we want?”
