Man Utd could secure signing of £26.5million star by paying cash


Manchester United are linked with Dutch international and Barcelona star Jasper Cillessen.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the former Ajax goal keeper has been linked with a move to Benfica, who are looking to pay in installments. However, it is stated that the Catalan giants are not willing to negotiate split payments.

As far as Man Utd are concerned, the Spanish source have stated that the Red Devils have already shown interest in luring the 30-year-old shot stopper, who can be lured by making a cash payment that Barcelona desire.

Transfer: £62million player seems willing to accept offer to sign for Man United

Earlier this month, Marca reported that the La Liga champions are demanding a fee of 30 million euros (£26.5million) for Cillessen.

Manchester United have not agreed a new deal with David De Gea as yet. If the Spanish international leaves this summer then a top quality replacement must be lured.

Cillessen is an experienced star, who has so far featured in 48 games for the senior national side. Still, the former Eredivise goalie has been a bench warmer ever since he moved to the Nou Camp back in 2016.

In the 2016-17 campaign, Cillessen only managed to feature in one league game for Barca. Similarly, last season, the Netherlands star could only feature in a single league fixture. Lastly, in the recently concluded La Liga campaign, he was selected in the starting XI in the last three games.

In the Champions League, he has made three appearances in three seasons. Copa Del Rey is the only competition, in which he has regularly started for the Spanish giants. The Dutch international helped them win the cup title in the last two seasons but this time around, Barca were defeated by Valencia in the final.

In your view, is there a goal keeper good enough to replace De Gea at Old Trafford?


  1. De Gea should be allowed to go for us to try another keeper. His form has dropped tremendously.

  2. `No need ……. Romero is much better and can do the job He is a loyal keeper and been around with United for a long while United also have raising star Henderson as a back up Save the money and gain another youthful superstar !!
