Mundo Deportivo reports that negotiations between Barca and the goalkeeper’s club, Borussia Monchengladbach, are entering the final stage, although there has been no mention of the fee.

But a five-year contract has been agreed between Barca and ter Stegen.

Ter Stegen had already told Gladbach he would not renew his contract when it expires in 2015, effectively forcing the Bundesliga club to sell this summer rather than lose the player for free.

It is expected that Barca and Gladbach will confirm the deal as soon as it is completed despite Barca initially wanting to wait for Victor Valdes to announce where he will be playing next season.

Valdes is to leave Camp Nou but insists he will not agree terms with a new club before the end of the season.
