Borussia Monchengladbach have denied reports suggesting that Barcelona have launched a bid for German international goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
The Catalan giants were said to have for the 21-year-old, who is rated as one of the best young shot-stoppers in Europe.
However, the Foals' director of football Max Eberl claims that the story has been 'invented' and insists that Ter Stegen will remain at Borussia Park.
The 39-year-old also rubbished rumours that the youngster has a release clause as part of his contract.
"He's here - any further comment about it would be too much," he told Fohlen-Hautnah. "If the Spaniards like to invent these stories, it's another thing.
"Neither the player nor Borussia Monchengladbach know anything about any interest, a deal or an agreement. We're building something up here, and I think he likes being a part of it."
He added: "His agent said this six times before to newspapers [that there is no clause] - now I say it for the seventh time and I don't want to be asked about it again."
Ter Stegen has won three caps for Germany.
