Jasper Cillessen

Amsterdam, Aug 19 (IANS) Spanish football giants FC Barcelona is offering between 10 and 12 million euros ($11.31 to $13.58 million) to seek the transfer of Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen from club Ajax.

The newspaper Telegraaf said on Friday that Chilean Claudio Bravo is ready to leave Barcelona for Manchester City, with Cillessen close to joining the Catalan club, reports Efe.

In the Netherlands, the 27-year-old Cillessen has been criticised this week after Ajax drew 1-1 in the first leg of the qualifying round of the Champions League against the Russian side Rostov.

Ajax fans attributed the goal by the Russians to an “error” from Cillessen, who they said “is already in his mind in Barcelona”.

The newspaper noted that English club Manchester United had shown interest in Cillessen at a similar time last year.
