Ter Stegen joined the club in 2014 from Bundesliga leaders Borussia Mochengladbach for just €12million (£10.8m) but has since seen his value rise immeasurably.
His appearance in the 4-0 win over Sevilla at the weekend was his 200th game for the Catalan giants and the club appear to have no plan to move him on.
He has kept 84 clean sheets in that run and has produced more than 500 saves.
Summer arrival Neto is the understudy to Ter Stegen but knows it will be tough to dislodge the consistent German.
The reports in Spain are that the club are confident they can agree to a new contract given the player feels valued and is said to be happy at the Nou Camp.
