Jasper Cillessen: 'Dutch players want to sign for Barcelona'

Cillessen: 'Dutch players want Barca move'

Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen says that each of the Netherlands squad would like to represent the Catalan giants at some point in their careers.

Goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has suggested that each of his Netherlands teammates would struggle to turn down a transfer to Barcelona.

Cillessen is currently the only Dutch player present in Ernesto Valverde's squad, but both Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong have been heavily linked with a move to Camp Nou.

The young duo will have options to secure a transfer elsewhere, but Cillessen has indicated that a switch to Barcelona would be their first choice.

The 29-year-old told Sport: "Yes, everybody in the national team would like to play for Barcelona because its one of the best teams in the world.

"I spoke with [De Ligt] about [Barcelona], he has the level, but he's still 19 years old. I don't know because [Marc] Overmars is in charge at Ajax, so I don't know what he wants [to let him leave]. I also read he's not going anywhere [in January]."

De Ligt has a contract at Ajax until 2021, while De Jong's deal expires in 2022.
