Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen will still be leaving the club in the summer, even though a potential move to Barcelona could fall through, according to the player and his agent.

The Germany goalkeeper announced earlier this year that he had reached an agreement with another club to join them in the summer with Barcelona widely expected to be that club.

An official announcement has never been made, though, with the Catalans understood to be waiting until the future of their current number one Victor Valdes was resolved, but after being given a transfer ban by FIFA on Wednesday, ter Stegen's arrival has been placed in jeopardy.

"I have received FIFA's decision, but that doesn't influence the situation with Marc," said the player's agent Gerd vom Bruch to the Bild newspaper. "We're quite relaxed about it all. Marc will still be moving in the summer."

The transfer ban is understood only to affect any transfers from the day it comes into force.

Should ter Stegen, who has reportedly already passed a medical with Barca, already have signed a contract with the Catalans, then he should nonetheless be free to make the switch in July.

"I don't know anything about the accusations towards Barcelona, but whatever happens, I am still leaving Gladbach in the summer," said ter Stegen, whose place in the Gladbach goal will be given to current Basel custodian Yann Sommer, who has already signed on for the Foals from 2014/15.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
