Barcelona goalkeeper Cillessen open to Premier League move
The 29-year-old signed a five-year contract at Barcelona in the summer of 2016.
Jasper Cillessen said he could be open to a move the Premier League, but only if Barcelona told him they do not want him to stay at the Nou Camp.
The 29-year-old goalkeeper admits he is aware of interest from Premier League clubs with Liverpool and Arsenal both believed to be keeping an eye of his situation at the LaLiga Champions.
Nine of Cillessen’s 11 appearances for Barcelona last season came in the Copa del Rey which Barcelona won by beating Sevilla 5-0, with a single game in the Champions League and LaLiga.
“I think that I played well in the matches I had in the Copa del Rey,” Cillessen told Fox Sports.
“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 the 16th July 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.”
Cillessen only conceded three goals in the 11 games he played for Barcelona.
