Ter Stegen laughs off Barcelona links

The Germany international has made it clear that he has not signed a deal with the Liga champions amid ongoing speculation that he is on his way to the Catalans
Marc-Andre ter Stegen has insisted that there is no truth in the rumours linking him with a move to Barcelona and is eagerly anticipating the 2013-14 campaign with Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Catalans supposedly see Ter Stegen as the ideal replacement for Victor Valdes once the latter leaves the club at the end of his contract in June 2014 and several reports suggest that the Germany international has already signed a pre-agreement with Barca.

However, the 21-year-old has stressed that he has not signed anything with the Blaugrana and laughed off the latest round of transfer speculation.

"The things that I have supposedly already signed at Barcelona... It is quite amusing," Ter Stegen was quoted as saying by Bild.

"It seems like a lot of people know much more about my future than I do. Fact is, though, that I'm still here at Gladbach.

"I am looking forward to the new season and the club's good signings. I'm very excited about what's happening at Borussia.

"However, you never know what will happen in the next few seasons..."

Ter Stegen's contract with Monchengladbach runs until the summer of 2015.
