Check fluid levels first and also check where the shifter comes through the floor and attaches to the rod going to the tranny, make sure that pivot point is not rusted. There's a plastic to metal bushing underneath on the shifter points. If it's rusted, it makes it really hard to shift. If both check out fine, only then look at possible internal issue. (PS - some clicking is normal.)

hi, i know you say the clutch is ok but you might find that the clutch is really low causing the problem your having.
Also depending on the age of your car it might be a case that the clutch need adjusting but on the newer car its self adjusting( if its hydraulic then its self adjusting)
If the clutch is 100% ok then you might find that the gear selector is worn where it connects to the gearbox these can be replaced and are not that difficult to do. You will need to check these for any play if their is a lot of play in them then these need replacing and should solve your problem. If they are adjustable selectors then mark where they are now then try adjusting them (some are adjustable and others are not depending on make and model)
If they are not adjustable or have no play in them then the only other thing that could be wrong would be the clutch or pressure plate.
If you are unsure what your looking for then leave to a pro as you could make the problem worse by adjusting them to much im not even sure if yours are adjustable but you would be able to tell by getting under the car and follow where the gear stick connects to the rods if its just pushed on to a nylon ball at end of rods (not held on by bolts) then these are not adjustable. But if the selector is pushed onto a rod and has a bolt running through it then this can be slid either way remember to mark where it is first so as you can go back to this point if it make the problem worse. Only move it a fraction at a time checkin each time you move it. If it makes it worse or no different then the chances are the clutch is at fault.
Even though the clutch might feel good this doesnt mean its working properly when changing gear so bear this in mind.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

needs a new clutch ,its grabbing and not clearing properly ,do not use force to change gear as these vehicle dont like it the syncros break ,stop engine put in gear clutch down then start engine Cannot really answer the wear in the gearbox question without a drive though but from what you descibe i would say clutch but it could the syncros but not on all gears ,normally second goes then thrid and fourth then finally first .best bet is to get a local mechanic to have a drive and then post what he says on here by answering my reply then i will get it .
