Cillessen pushes Rafinha towards Valencia move: 'He would be an important person here'
- Former Barcelona keeper tells that he is fond of the Brazilian and wishes to see him at Valencia.
- The Catalan club is reportedly ready to let Rafinha go.
- Valencia are considered to be the main contender for the 26-year-old.
"He would be very important here with this system. He is a friend of mine and I want him to come here," told Jasper to Marca.
Cillessen is sure that Rafinha is a quality player and his misfortunes are just the result of lengthy injuries.
"Rafinha is a very good player and has had very bad luck with injuries."
Meanwhile, local media reveal that Barcelona and Valencia will likely reach an agreement on the Brazilian's move to the Bats this summer. The alleged sum requested by the Catalans is €15m.
Still, the 26-year-old is included in the pre-season squad for the Japan tour and will probably take part in one of the upcoming friendlies.
