The Blaugrana have been banned from signing any players for the next two transfer windows, so Gerd vom Bruch cannot see how his client can complete his move to Camp Nou
Marc-Andre ter Stegen's agent does not believe that the Borussia Monchengladbach starlet's proposed move to Barcelona will now go through.
The Germany international had already agreed to join the Blaugrana at the end of the season but the deal is now in jeopardy after FIFA announced on Wednesday that the Catalans have been banned from signing any players for the next two transfer windows because of FIFA regulation breaches relating to the acquisition and registration of players under the age of 18.
Ter Stegen's representative, Gerd vom Bruch, had initially claimed that he was confident that the reported 12 million euro switch would still go through but now he cannot see how the goalkeeper can complete his move to Camp Nou.
"If I have read the FIFA announcement in the right way, Marc-Andre's transfer [to Barcelona] will not be done in summer," the agent told SportBild.
Ter Stegen claimed earlier in the day that even if he is blocked from joining the Liga champions, he has no intention of seeing out the final year of his contract with Monchengladbach.
