FC Barcelona

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the German goalkeeper's future at Barcelona, with Premier League teams linked.

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen seems to have suggested that he is happy with the circumstances he is currently working under at the Camp Nou.

There has been a lot of speculation that the German will look for a move away from the La Liga giants in the summer given the current rotation policy that is undertaken by Barca boss Luis Enrique, which sees Ter Stegen in goal for the European games, and Claudio Bravo in goal for the regular league games.

According to the Daily Telegraph, both Manchester City and Liverpool have expressed an interest in him from the Premier League, who said back in March that City were on the brink of signing the goalkeeper.

Ter Stegen is quoted by Marca, who cite an interview with Barca TV: "I am very happy and want to stay here, with the life I have.

"You can never relax and always have to give everything. Both I, Claudio [Bravo] and Jordi [Masip] want to play and we work every week to do so.

"I think that this idea is also good for the team because we are always ready." 

Here, Ter Stegen appears to endorse the selection policy, though many would say that he would given who he was giving the interview to.

But there has been a lot of speculation surrounding his future for quite some time which suggests that he would like to be the man playing on a more regular basis. He seems to relish the competition at Barcelona, and any goalkeeper of his standard would like to play in every game he possibly can. 

Either way, speculation surrounding his future won't go away.
