'Barca can bid for De Jong, but Ajax won't sell!'

'Barca can bid for De Jong, but Ajax won't sell!'

According to the sources, Barcelona have made a bid around £25-30 million for De Jong.

As he continues to gain experience at the highest level, coupled with the technical quality that he boasts to seemingly be a flawless fit for the Barcelona style of play, there are plenty of reasons as to why De Jong could be seen as a legitimate long-term solution for the Barcelona midfield.

De Jong came through the youth ranks at Willem II but has developed in to one of the most exciting young talents in Dutch football since joining Ajax with his superb form earning him a call-up to the senior Holland squad.

"They may return for Frenkie in January, but players will not leave in that period".

The Catalan club were heavily interested in securing the services of the 21-year-old over the summer, having seen Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann snub a move to Camp Nou.

Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur will meet in the Champions League later this season, and it might not be the only time they do battle in the near future.




At Barcelona they want De Jong to add to the midfield, he has similar qualities to Busquets but is better at arriving in the box.

De Jong made his senior global debut as a substitute for the Netherlands against Peru on Thursday before he was handed his first start in Sunday's 2-1 defeat to France.

"Maybe someday I'll join Barcelona, but not this season", he told NOS last month.

Spurs became the first Premier League side in recent history to not sign a single player during the summer transfer window as Pochettino was left frustrated by chairman Daniel Levy's failed attempts to land his top targets.

De Jong had made 37 appearances for Ajax to date.
