Official: Ter Stegen Extends Barcelona Contract Until 2028


Barcelona Secures Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s Services with Contract Extension

Barcelona has successfully secured the continued presence of one of their pivotal players in Xavi Hernandez’s squad. First-choice goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has chosen to extend his contract with the Catalan club, a move that not only ensures his own commitment but also aids his teammates’ registrations for the ongoing season.

Originally set to expire in 2025, the German goalkeeper’s contract extension now stretches until 2028. This decision is timely, as it facilitates the inclusion of Inaki Pena in the team roster for the upcoming matches, particularly the fixture against Villarreal on Sunday.

Beyond his on-field contributions, Ter Stegen’s leadership role has grown significantly. With the departures of Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, he has risen to become one of Barcelona’s captains. In a remarkable display of dedication to his current club, the 31-year-old has agreed to defer his salary to enable the extension of his contract.

Ter Stegen’s continued presence is set to be a source of reassurance and stability for Barcelona, further solidifying his place as an essential figure in the team’s ongoing pursuits.
