The Frenkie de Jong soap has finally ended with this announcement. The 21 years old Ajax player never hide his love for Barcelona. In several interviews he expressed his feelings towards the club and his love for Lionel Messi. It’s a dream come true for him to play next to Messi next season. With this transfer Barca beats PSG who were very close to signing him a month ago.
Frenkie de Jong’s Development
The Arkel born player is one of the most promising midfield prospects in the world of football. He started with professional football in the Willem 2/RKC Waalwijk academy. Ajax scouts were very impressed by him and the club signed him in 2015 for 1 euro and sent some players on loan to Willem 2. Now 4 years later Ajax sells Frenkie de Jong for 75 million to Fc Barcelona. He’s grown into a really good player and is already a regular in the Dutch national team. Everybody who’s seen him playing football knows he’s a really big prospect. I’m a big Ajax fan so I will miss him at our club, but I really hope he’s going enjoy the fans at Camp Nou.
The big question for many people is when this transfer is going to happen. For me there was never a question that it’s about a summer transfer. Frenkie de Jong expressed multiple times that he loves to play for Ajax and he wants to win something with the team. Ajax is still in the Champions League, plays in the Dutch cup and is two points behind the first place in the league. So there was never a doubt that he would leave in the winter. I hope Frenkie will win the Dutch league this season as a farewell gift for the club and us as fans.
