Jasper Cillessen TEAMtalk

Manchester United will look to Barcelona to replace David De Gea, while Manchester City will pay the release clause of Antoin Griezmann, all in the papers.



Barcelona keeper Jasper Cillessen has emerged as a Manchester United target.

David de Gea’s long-term future at Old Trafford is once again in doubt after the club activated the one-year extension to his contract.

The Spain stopper continues to be linked with Real Madrid and if he does depart this summer then United will need a ready-made replacement and the Daily Record reports that Cillessen is one of the names in the frame.

The Dutch keeper has been playing second fiddle to Marc-Andre ter Stegen from the Barcelona side and with two years left on his Camp Nou deal it’s understood a fee of around £22million would secure his services.

Cillessen will look to leave Barcelona this summer. In an interview with a Dutch TV station last month, Cillessen said: “First I will go on holiday. And then I hope to have a new club where I can play, because I want to play.”
