MARC-ANDRE TER STEGEN has opened the door on a possible move to Manchester City by admitting he will discuss his future with Barcelona in the summer.
The German goalkeeper has grown frustrated by only playing in the Champions League for the Spanish club and is a target for in-coming City boss Pep Guardiola.
Asked about the chance of moving to the Premier League in the summer, Ter Stegen said: “This is a question for this summer.
“We have a lot of important games at this moment and that’s all I can say. The most important thing is to play well and at the end of the season we will see how the situation is and we’ll talk again.
“Barcelona is a spectacular team and we’ll see how it goes.”
Even though they were beaten 2-1 by Barcelona in the first leg of their quarter-final, Atletico Madrid defedner Filipe Luis maintains his side are still very much in tie.
He said: “We are still alive, we have to win now. It is possible but it will be really difficult.”
Meanwhile, Benfica regarded their 1-0 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich as a moral victory.
Bayern had scored 18 goals in their four previous home European games and when Arturo Vidal gave them a second-minute lead in Tuesday’s quarter-final first leg at the Allianz Arena, the Portuguese champions appeared destined for a long night.
