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.

Jasper Cillessen has failed to establish himself as a No.1 goalkeeper at Barcelona

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.”
