Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen desperate for transfer to new club

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.”
