Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has insisted that he is "happy" at the Catalan club amid reports that Manchester City are interested in signing him in the summer.

However, Ter Stegen, 24, refused to pledge his long-term future to Barcelona and said he was only focused on doing his best for the club.

"I am happy here, with my team-mates and my friends," the goalkeeper told Barcelona-based daily La Vanguardia.

"I do not know whether I will stay at Barcelona for many years. You never know what happens in the future.

"I just try to give my all and do what's best for me and for the team. I want to give my best and keep improving.

"I am living in the moment. That is the most important thing."

City manager Pep Guardiola reportedly chased after Ter Stegen's signature last summer before he eventually settled on signing the German goalkeeper's then-club teammate, Claudio Bravo.

However, the Chile international has struggled in his first season in English football and has lost his first-team place at the Etihad to back-up goalkeeper Willy Caballero after a string of error-strewn displays.

The Daily Mail reported last month that City could offer as much as £30m ($37m) to try and tempt Barcelona into selling Ter Stegen this summer.

Joe Hart, who is currently on a season-long loan at Torino, remains another option for Guardiola, but the England international has said he does not expect to return to the Etihad next season.

Guardiola told Hart he was free to leave the club last summer after being unimpressed with his ball-playing skills.

"To get results he (Guardiola) needed to have a team he felt comfortable with and a team he wanted," Hart told the BBC in March.

"I didn't fall into that category and that's no problem. I'd have loved to have stayed and fought and shown what I can do, but I don't have that time."
