Barca ‘willing to sell’ Cillessen

Jasper Cillessen has told Barcelona of his desire to leave the club this summer and could be allowed to exit for €30m, according to reports in Spain.

The Dutch international has been linked with moves to Liverpool and Chelsea, with his current deal at the Camp Nou running through to 2021 and containing a reported €60m release clause.

Diario Sport now state the shot-stopper has ‘received multiple offers from around Europe’ and the Catalan giants are willing to lower their threshold for the goalkeeper.

Cillessen, 29, joined Barca from Ajax in 2016 but has struggled to dislodge Marc-Andre Ter Stegen from the number one spot and has made just two La Liga appearances across two seasons.

Earlier this month, the goalkeeper said: “I think that I played well in the matches I had in the Copa del Rey.

“I need to wait patiently. The only thing I know is that Barcelona won't sell me.

“Arsenal and Liverpool aren't bad clubs but if Barcelona say, 'We love you,' then I'll accept their decision and continue there.

“I'll wait until we return on July 16 to see what they've decided. I don't know anything. If the club wants to keep me, I'll accept that. I signed a five-year deal with them.”
