Barcelona Eye Athletic Goalkeeper Alex Remiro As Potential Replacement For Jasper Cillessen
Alex Remiro’s time at Athletic is coming to an end. The 23-year-old has already made the decision not to renew his contract with Athletic and will be free to talk to other clubs in January due to his current deal expiring at the end of the season. Several teams have already been identified as potential suitors for the Lezama product, but another big name has been added to the list.
According to a report from Ignasi Oliva Gispert of Goal, Barcelona are eyeing a move for the goalkeeper with the Balugrana expecting Jasper Cillessen to leave the Camp Nou in the near future. Cillessen has not enjoyed regular playing time at Barcelona and wants to move somewhere else in order to protect his place as the starting goalkeeper for The Netherlands.
Remiro has already proven himself ready to face Primera competition during his loan spell with Huesca last season and would essentially be available for free due to his expiring contract. Barcelona will continue to monitor the situation closely and have already expressed interest in signing the 23-year-old if Cillessen does leave the club. At this point is appears as though it is only a matter of time before Alex Remiro says goodbye to the San Mamés.
