Ter Stegen admits he may consider Barcelona future

Liverpool linked Marc-Andre ter Stegen admits he may have to leave Barcelona if he is not given more game time .

Marc-Andre ter Stegen says admits his future at Spanish giants Barcelona remains unclear, amid reported interest from several sides in the Premier League.

Liverpool have been the latest club to be linked with the former Borussia Monchengladbach stopper, who has taken the role of the club’s cup goalkeeper this season, featuring eight times in the Champions League and six times in the Copa del Rey.

However, the German has largely played second fiddle to Claudio Bravo in La Liga, making just four appearances this season.

But impressive performances in the Champions League have nevertheless attracted plenty of plaudits, although the 23-year-old insists he is not thinking about the links between him and other teams.

However, he admits his future at the European champions is by no means set in stone.

According to Talksport, he told sport1.de: "I'm not considering myself with other clubs because the situation doesn't currently oblige me to.

"Football is my job and all that matters is the present, the next game. I am not going to be wasting time considering what I do next.

"Barca are a great club and things can still change between now and the summer.

"If the situation remains the way it is at the moment, however, then we're definitely going to have to talk - there's no avoiding that."

A move to Liverpool for Ter Stegen would represent a substantial change of heart from Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, who in January ruled out the move, via the Liverpool Echo, stating he was happy with current keepers Simon Mignolet and Adam Bogdan.
