FC Barcelona have a solid goalkeeper department – with Ter Stegen as No.1 and Jasper Cillessen as the second goalkeeper – but Cillessen, reportedly, wants to leave in search of greener pastures.
FC Barcelona have two world-class goalkeepers. They have Germany’s Ter Stegen. They have Netherland’s Jasper Cillessen. There is no denying that both are world-class goalkeepers, but the La Liga giants have not been able to provide Cillssen with ample playing time. This has forced the Dutch International to seek a move away from Spain.
While he had offers from clubs like Liverpool this summer [before they eventually signed Alisson Becker from AS Roma], no deal materialized for him. However, the absence of playing time hints that he will again seek for a move away from FC Barcelona in the January transfer window.
Responding to it, the Camp Nou side are reportedly monitoring the developments of PSV’s goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet, who is also a Dutch International. Reports suggest FC Barcelona are interested in signing this goalkeeper, who has an impressive record in the Eredivisie.
Jeroen Zoet will have an opportunity to impress FC Barcelona when his side PSV Eindhoven face off against the La Liga behemoths in the UEFA Champions League group fixture. If this 27-year-old manages to display decently against FC Barcelona, it will further impress the defending La Liga champions.
However, it remains to be seen which club would Jasper Cillessen move in the January transfer window. He had a slew of offers in the summer transfer window, and there is no doubt he will have potential suitors in January, but it remains to be seen if they would come on terms with FC Barcelona’s price demands.
Cillessen is a highly talented goalkeeper and deserves to play more time. A move away from FC Barcelona will only help the player get better. He has been warming the bench at the club for some time now. Despite performing decently in the pre-season, it is Ter Stegen who starts for Ernesto Valverde’s side in the league games. However, even if FC Barcelona sign Zoet, he will only be a substitute goalkeeper for Ter Stegen. So, it remains to be seen if Zoet would make a move.
