Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has opened up on rumours linking him to Arsenal and Liverpool.
Cillessen has a release clause of £52million and has admitted Barcelona will not sell him for anything less, despite having been back-up to Marc-Andre ter Stegen last season.
“I think that I played well in the matches I had in the Copa del Rey,” Cillessen said. “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.” (Daily Express)
Liverpool will reportedly discover next week whether Barcelona stopper Jasper Cillessen will be on the move this summer.
Cillessen has emerged as a potential target with AS Roma holding firm on Alisson Becker and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak too pricey.
Spanish newspaper Sport suggest Liverpool could swoop for the Holland international. And it has been revealed meetings will take place next week in order to discuss where Cillessen’s future lies beyond the summer. (Daily Express)
