Every GK wants to feel loved

Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has admitted that he will seek out a new club in the summer due to a lack of playing time, but harbours no ill will against his club and has urged Matthijs de Ligt to make a move to Camp Nou. Cillessen was signed from Ajax in 2016 but has been limited to only 28 La Liga appearances with the club due to Marc-Andre ter Stegen being preferred as the club’s first-choice shot-stopper.

Loan out

The Spaniard has featured in four games under the French coach and especially in the last encounter against Getafe he produced an impressive display. Madrid, however, are adamant that Diaz should get more playing time away from Los Blancos, as they see him as a project, following their transfer policy of signings the best talents around.

The return

Wenger is bound to give any offer serious thought. He could well welcome the challenge to end Paris Saint-Germain’s dominance of the domestic game in France - but PSG are themselves keen to offer Wenger a key role. They played Rennes in the French Cup final on Saturday night and are already Ligue 1 champions. However, manager Thomas Tuchel is under pressure after persistent failure in the Champions League. This season they squandered a first leg win at Manchester United in the last 16 and went out in dramatic fashion in the reverse fixture to a controversial penalty, but that may not be enough to save Tuchel his job. Wenger has a close working relationship with the Qatari owners of PSG. Again, a role of general manager would be on the agenda should Tuchel leave.
