Barcelona want £20million from Liverpool

Marc-Andre ter Stegen

Barcelona have slapped a £20million asking price on their goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Liverpool are willing to pay around £12million for the 23-year-old German international which appears to fall considerably lower than what Barca are willing to accept.

Ter Stegen has a buy-out clause in his contract which is in excess of £60m and although the Catalan giants aren’t looking for anything near that figure, they’re also not in a rush to sell.

Barcelona paid Borussia Monchengladbach £10million for Ter Stegen in May 2014 and signed him up on a 5-year contract but he is reportedly unsettled at the Nou Camp.

Reports claim that Barcelona believe 3rd-choice ‘keeper Jordi Masip is ready to step in as Claudio Bravo’s understudy.

Liverpool have tried to sign Ter Stegen before but once Barcelona became involved, our interest cooled when it become obvious that his heart was set on a move to Spain.

Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp wants to upgrade on Simon Mignolet although there is no suggestion that he wants to bomb him out of the club just yet.

    Liverpool need a whole new spine as well as a bunch of peripheral players. GK, CB, CM, CF and that’s just for starters. The team lacks pace, has no width and plays with three lightweight number 10’s that get bullied. Time to get rid of Mignolet, Lallana and Allen as they bring nothing. I’d even be tempted to get rid of Moreno too. I keep hearing he’s good going forward but how many assists does he get? How many goals does he score? Defensively a liability. Flanagan is a much better defender. I like Benteke but he’s always looking for a diagonal ball in a team that doesn’t play them. Hence if we can’t fit him in then let’s sell him.

    Liverpool’s transfer committee aren’t willing to pay for 20million the f***? They are holding back Liverpool as a club progressing in a right direction on and off the pitch. for f sake man the committee can buy lallana, markovic, allen and benteke with all the inflated price. But when it matters they can’t afford to pay a right price for a decent player like ter stegen. my gosh our club is becoming a joke. We can pay the asking price with all those mediocre players that doesn’t help the club at all but not the right players that’s going to help us to improve. what is going on? can we get rid of the transfer committee. Please acknowledge the fans and spread the words this is very IMPORTANT they deserved to know why we can’t buy the right players but can pay more for the mediocre.
