Bayern Munich line up a world-record bid for Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, according to a report.

Bayern Munich are reportedly lining up a world-record bid for Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The Bundesliga champions have allegedly identified Ter Stegen as the ideal replacement for Manuel Neuer, who is currently being linked with a move to Chelsea.

Ter Stegen's current deal with the Catalan giants will run until the summer of 2022, although it has been claimed that the 27-year-old could reject a new contract in favour of a move to the Allianz Arena.

According to Sport, Bayern are determined to sign the Germany international this summer and could be prepared to eclipse the current world-record transfer fee for a goalkeeper.

Kepa Arrizabalaga's £72m switch to Chelsea from Athletic Bilbao in 2018 currently holds the record, but the German giants are allegedly prepared to go as high as £80m for Ter Stegen.

The stopper has kept 11 clean sheets in 34 appearances for Barca during the current season.
