Reports: Barca Star Wants Out
Reports: FC Barcelona Star Wants Out
With reports suggesting that several FC Barcelona players want to quit the club in this transfer window, another Blaugrana star has now reportedly added his name to the list.
It was recently stated that the likes of Andre Gomes, Rafinha and Paco Alcacer, among others, are ready to consider moves away from the Camp Nou.
Many changes are expected to be made within the club's first team squad, with players coming in and leaving, and it has now been claimed that yet another senior player is looking for a move away from Barca.
According to Sport, goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has offers on the table from several top sides in Europe where he would be a regular starter, unlike at Barca, where he is second choice behind Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
The Dutch goalkeeper is said to be grateful for the opportunity he has been given to play for the Blaugrana, but feels a move might be best for his career.
A concern for any would-be suitors, though, is that the shot-stopper is said to have a €60 million (R962 million) buyout clause in his contract, which his representatives feel many clubs would not be willing to pay.
It is likely that his agents will ask the Catalan giants to lower their asking price for the Dutchman, and it was also claimed that Barca will want to get a deal sorted out as soon as possible.
Are you surprised that Cillessen wants to leave Barca? Let us know in the comments section below.
