Borussia Monchengladbach are resigned to losing goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen to Barcelona.

Marca says there has already been contact and an initial agreement with Ter Stegen, although a deal still needs to be reached with Borussia Mönchengladbach.

But Glabach boss Lucien Favre conceded: "We hope that he stays with us, but when a club like Barcelona comes for you, well… We have to be realistic, but remain hopeful."
