Well, that’s certainly tempting, even for Barcelona…

Barcelona is one of the wealthiest clubs in the world. This goes without saying as they require such funds to pay the world-leading wages of Lionel Messi. It also helps that they have one of the largest sports followings in the world.

However, even a club with the rich ancestry of Barcelona is tempted by big offers for their star players. And Marc-Andre ter Stegen is certainly one of them since alongside Messi, he has been the most important player for Quique Setien’s side this season.

It just seems like he constantly bails the Blaugrana out and it’s largely due to his work between the sticks that Barca remain top of La Liga. If Messi can’t come up with the goods in the final third, then ter Stegen will certainly come up with the goods in his own third.

This is why it’s not a surprise to see Bayern Munich are heavily interested in signing him. Especially with the veteran goalkeeper Manuel Neuer linked with a move away, the Bavarian side is looking for some fresh talent to fill the sticks.

According to the Daily Mirror, Bayern is prepared to go all out to make Marc-Andre ter Stegen their replacement keeper. The report claims they are willing to offer a world-record fee of £90m to sign ter Stegen.

And who can blame them? Honestly, the German goalkeeper is one of, if not THE best in his position right now. He really is world-class, and I don’t use that term lightly.

Many might not know this, but Barcelona has not been in the best of form this season. Yet, because of the work of their goalkeeper, they remain top of the league and still in the Champions League (obviously, they won’t be seeing any action anytime soon but I’m sure you’ve had enough of hearing that).

There are many games that Barcelona has won but they perhaps shouldn’t have, or at least they should have dropped more points than they have done. This is what MATS brings to the table and this is why I cannot fault Bayern Munich for their determination.

As for Barcelona, it’s bound to be tempting. However, the board must consider what the best option is. They have no reason to sell out unless, of course, they need more funds to pay for Neymar’s arrival. It remains to be seen, but it’s definitely an interesting one.
