While Barcelona has continued to sustain success since the arrival of Ter Stegen, the 24-year-old has fiercely battled for the club’s no. 1 position in net, a fight that he has largely lost.

Chilean keeper Claudio Bravo has quickly made his name as one of the world’s top shot-stoppers, keeping Ter Stegen off the field with the exception of a few La Liga matches and European competitions.

Rumored interest from Manchester City has Ter Stegen seeking a move from the Camp Nou, but Barca’s release clause for the keeper has essentially made the German unmovable. The Blaugrana are reportedly seeking just shy of $90 million to trigger Ter Stegen’s release clause, and have told the netminder: If you want to go, pay the clause.
