Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen says he has talked to Netherlands team-mate Matthijs de Ligt about a move to the Camp Nou.

The centre-back is reportedly deciding between a move to Paris Saint-Germain or Barcelona, and Cillessen says he went through the options with the teenager.

“I sat down with him to talk about all his options, the same as I did with Frenkie, I told him that the decision belongs to him. Matthijs is a good boy and he knows what he has to do.

“I talked to him, but I told him that I could not make the decision for him, he knows what he has to do. I can only talk about good things about Barça because it’s a great club and I have a great feeling with Barça.”

Cillessen was also asked about his future and said Valencia are a “great team” but will not make a decision until he’s had a holiday following the conclusion of the Nations League.
