Marc-Andre ter Stegen is set to sign a new five-year deal at Barcelona which will make him one of the highest paid players at the club, with only Lionel Messi reportedly likely to earn more.

Even though president Josep Maria Bartomeu is set to be outed, with club members recently giving him a vote of no confidence, he wants to sort Ter Stegen's contract before he leaves.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, European football and La Liga has been hit hard financially, meaning that Barca have implemented a salary limit for the time being.

That means that, although Ter Stegen is set for a bump in pay, it will not come into effect until the last two years of his contract, according to Sport.

The demands from the German goalkeeper are not thought to be unreasonable as he believes he contributes a lot to the team due to the amount of minutes played as well as his improvement between the sticks over the duration of his previous deal.

Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea all reportedly contacted Ter Stegen about his potential availability, but any interest was rebuffed by the keeper, who wishes to remain loyal to Barca.

After suffering from a lingering knee injury in the 2019/20 campaign, Ter Stegen underwent successful surgery in September, meaning he is still in recovery.

He is yet to feature this season under the tenure of new head coach Ronald Koeman.

The new contract is set to be announced next week.
