Marc-André ter Stegen is currently unable to play and still has a contract with FC Barcelona until 2022. Both are expected to change soon. The deadline is the date of the “Clasico” against Real Madrid. He certainly doesn’t remember
his last appearance well – it was 2-8 against FC Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Four days after the debacle, he underwent an operation on the patella tendon in the right knee.
In the previous three league games Neto stood between the posts near Barcelona. This is likely to change soon: According to consistent media reports, the DFB-Keeper will make his comeback against Real Madrid in Clasico in La Liga on 24 October (4 P.M., live! at kicker).
Perhaps already with a new contract in his pocket? Rumours have been getting food for a long time that ter Stegen will extend its contract until 2022 prematurely until 2025. Immediately before the Clasico the signature is to take place, it was now said in Spanish media. By the way, the Champions-League duel of Barcelona with Juventus Turin is already on the agenda on 28 October.
Ter Stegen could also return to the national team at the November International Games. The international match against the Czech Republic in Leipzig (11 November) and the Nations-League-Duelle in Leipzig against Ukraine (14 November) and Spain (17 November) are scheduled.
