De Telegraaf: Jasper Cillessen will sign for Barcelona until 2021

Ajax's Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has been chosen by Barcelona as the man to replace Claudio Bravo, who is heading to Manchester City.

According to the digital edition of De Telegraaf, the deal between FC Barcelona and Cillessen is for five seasons, until 2020-21. He was the preferred choice of Luis Enrique, ahead of Valencia's Brazilian stopper Diego Alves.

The goalkeeper will not play against Willem II for Ajax to ensure that he avoids contracting an injury ahead of his move.

Barcelona will pay around 14 million for the stopper, although it's not specific yet if that involves variables or not. 

The club are getting a 27-year-old with plenty of international and Champions League experience. Ajax are considering a move for Tim Krul to replace Cillessen.
