Bacrelona goalkeeper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, says he's happy at Barcelona and it's not time to discuss a new contract due to worries coronavirus pandemic has created.

Although his new contract talks have been put on hold, Barcelona goalkeeper, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, is quite happy at Barcelona.

The 28-year-old goalkeeper's contract ends at the end of 2021-22 season with the Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich, knocking at the door as there is uncertainty over the future of their current goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer.

Ter Stegen says now is not the time to discuss a new contract due to coronavirus pandemic, although his future at Barcelona is shrouded in doubt.

"We have already had the first conversations," Ter Stegen said during an Instagram Live with former club Borussia Monchengladbach.

"But as I said, we have parked it. There are much more important things.

"I am very happy here and the sporting situation is good, the team is doing well. What more can I ask for?"

Ter Stegen joined Barca from Bundesliga outfit Monchengladbach in 2014.

Since arriving at Camp Nou, the 28-year-old has won four LaLiga titles and the Champions League among other honours.

Barca were two points clear of bitter rivals Real Madrid through 27 matches when LaLiga was suspended amid the COVID-19 crisis in March.
