Barça continue to Marc-André ter Stegen (B. Moenchengladbach), goalkeeper of the future

He's 19, was U-17 European champion in 2009 and is the fewest goals in the Bundesliga.
It is a goal for his unadorned, good reflexes and powerful and technical kicking ball.

In the European Under 17, 2009, held in Germany, FC Barcelona technicians put his name in capital letters, along with other promises which are now realities, as the Italian Marco Fossati (Milan), the Englishman Jack Wilshere (Arsenal) the French Atila Turan (Grenoble) and Dennis Appiah (Monaco), the Swiss Frederic Veseli (Manchester United), Nassim Ben Khalifa (Nuremberg) and Haris Seferovic (Fiorentina) and his compatriot Mario Götze (Borussia Dortmund), the Golden Boy 2011 . The goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen received only two goals in five games and was instrumental in the ultimate victory of international football.

Since then, the Barça has closely followed the evolution of Ter Stegen (Moenchengladbach, April 30, 1992), which he considers one of the most promising goalkeepers in the world. Currently, the Borussia goalkeeper is the fewest goals in the Bundesliga, with fourteen goals conceded in twenty games. Ter Stegen has become one of the keys to the remarkable season for Borussia Moenchengladbach, who last season avoided relegation on the final day in the current figure and third, to just one point behind Bayern and five of Dortmund.

The new goalkeeping department directed by Juan Carlos Unzué continues 'thorny' Marc-André, among other young goalkeepers in the near future will play the second place Victor Valdés. At the end will Unzué who will decide, but monitoring is being conducted by Ricard Segarra, the coordinator of the area, along with Rubén Martínez, who is the goalkeeper coach of the two youth teams of Barcelona.
