Cillessen has been a valiant servant for the Blaugrana since his move from Dutch giants Ajax in the summer of 2016, with the Dutchman proving to be a solid back for German Marc-Andre Ter Stegen these past few seasons.

The 29-year-old made 11 appearances in total this season, with most of these coming in the Copa Del Rey, where Cillessen managed to keep seven clean sheets in nine games to help the club win their fourth consecutive Spanish Cup.

It seems Liverpool and Chelsea will have to fork out a bit in order to sign Cillessen this summer, with €50M being somewhat of a steep price for a player not playing consistent first team football at the Camp Nou.
