United shift focus to Barcelona for De Gea’s replacement



Jasper Cillessen

The English Premier League outfit is yet to convince Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea into staying at the club ahead of the coming season with his contract already running out.

The demand of the former Atletico stopper has not been met by the Red Devils and that is causing a delay in knowing the fate of the club for the coming season.

However, the latest report reveals that Man United are already considering a move for Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona stopper Jasper Cillessen should David De Gea fails to commit his future.

Jasper Cillessen is a known figure in Europe and has already decided to leave Barcelona at the end of the season as he has not been favored for selection. So far, the stopper has been able to land just 30 appearances across three seasons after losing his first-choice spot to Marc-Ander ter Stegen.

The Barcelona stopper has made it clear that he is ready for a move where he would secure the first-team football but that will happen after he goes to enjoy his holiday.
