Jasper Cillessen's future looks set to be away from Barcelona next sesason but there is still lots to be resolved. The Catalans have rejected Benfica's initial offer for the goalkeeper.

Cillessen has decided to leave Camp Nou. Holland's No.1, he left Ajax convinced he could compete with Marc-Andre ter Stegen but has not earned a regular spot in the team. 

If everything goes as planned, Cillessen will play his final game in the Copa del Rey final on May 25 against Valencia. 

Where he goes afterwards is not clear. Cillessen has an agreement with Benfica but the Portuguese club are a long way short of the 30 million euros Barça want (he has a deal until 2021 and a 60 million clause). 

Benfica's 12 million offer was snubbed by Barça. RAC1 suggested the club would be prepared to include young full-back Joao Ferreira in any deal.
