The Blaugrana ended their 2018/19 campaign with just the LaLiga title after being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals by Liverpool and losing the Copa del Rey final to Valencia.

Second-choice goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen played in that 2-1 defeat to Los Che, but has made it clear he is looking for a new challenge.

The Dutchman is widely regarded as one of the best back-up shot-stoppers in the game, but his rival for his club's No. 1 spot, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, seems untouchable in the first XI.

As a consequence, Cillessen wants to leave the club, and has reportedly received a verbal promise from president Josep Maria Bartomeu the he will be allowed to depart in this window.

The 30-year-old is heavily linked with a move to Benfica, but his €60 million (R976 million) release clause appears to be a stumbling block.

"That Barca ask for €60 million for me does not help me," he told Dutch publication VTBL, as cited by AS.

Despite his unhappiness about the situation, Cillessen also insisted he remains relaxed for now.

"I'm still calm, we have to wait and see what happens, I'll consider my options after the holidays," he added.
