Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen agrees personal terms with Benfica ahead of a potential move to Portugal, according to a report.

Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has reportedly agreed personal terms with Benfica ahead of a potential move to the Portuguese giants in this summer's transfer window.

Cillessen, who is behind Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the pecking order at Camp Nou, has been tipped to leave the Catalan giants in search of regular football.

Manchester United have been linked with the Netherlands international as a possible replacement for David de Gea, who could leave Old Trafford this summer.

However, according to Goal.com, Cillessen has agreed a deal to join Benfica and must now wait for the club to negotiate a fee with the Spanish champions.

The 30-year-old, who is a 48-time Netherlands international, has made just 31 appearances for Barcelona since a 2016 switch from Ajax.

United have reportedly decided that they will promote Sergio Romero to the number one position should De Gea be sold this summer, rather than enter the transfer market for a replacement.
