Marc-Andre Te Stegen: Being strongly linked with a summer move to Barcelona

Marc-Andre Te Stegen: Being strongly linked with a summer move to Barcelona

The 21-year-old goalkeeper is reported to be a top target for the La Liga giants as they start to prepare for life without Victor Valdes - with the Spain international set to move on at the end of the season when his contract expires.

A summer switch is said to be in the offing, with Barca planning long-term.

It has been suggested that Ter Stegen may struggle to handle the expectation at Camp Nou, having only been a Bundesliga regular for two full seasons.

Dominguez is, however, of the opinion that quality outweighs inexperience - although he would like to see his talented colleague remain in Germany for a few more years.

"There's no such thing as being too young when you are good - and Marc is very, very good," he told Bild.

"I am just happy that he plays for Gladbach and I hope that he stays here. He can always join Barcelona in five years' time or so if he keeps up this form.

"We have not spoken about Barcelona yet."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
