In the midst of the coronavirus crisis, the German club – one of the few European ocean liners that has no cash problems– I would be willing to put 100 million euros to sign Barcelona goalkeeper Marc Andre ter Stegen, as published by the Daily Mail.
This figure would convert to Ter Stegen in the record transfer of a goalkeeper in the history of football ahead of Alisson, who left Rome at Liverpool for 80 million, and from Spanish Kepa, who signed for the Chelsea after paying the 70 kilos of his clause in Athletic.
Bayern has a serious problem in goal, since has not reached an agreement to renew the legendary Manuel Neuer, who is 34 years old and ends his contract in 2022. The Bavarian club takes for granted the departure of the German international, possibly heading to Chelsea, for which he has already signed a young promise for the future, the goal of Schalke 04 Alexander Nübel, from 23 years. However, Bayern knows that it needs a world elite goalkeeper and has turned to Ter Stegen.
The signing of the century
