Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen desperate for transfer to new club
Jasper Cillessen has revealed he wants to leave Barcelona this summer.
The goalkeeper has been limited to Copa del Rey appearances since joining the Spanish champions in a £11million deal from Ajax in 2016.
Despite helping Barcelona to two Copa del Rey titles, the 30-year-old has played second fiddle to Marc-Andre ter Stegen, the club’s no.1 in LaLiga and the Champions League.
Cillessen, who has made just 28 club appearances in almost three years, told Dutch television channel Ziggo Sport: ”First I will go on holiday and then I hope to have a new club where I can play, because I want to play.”

His Ajax and Netherlands team-mate Matthijs de Ligt has been linked with a £75million summer move to the Nou Camp.
Cillessen, who is international team-mates with De Jong and De Ligt, added: “I know Frenkie de Jong is coming, but is the De Ligt thing true?
“In any case, if you have the chance to go to Barcelona, you have to take advantage of it.”
