Reports are rife that Ajax starlet Frenkie de Jong could be set to complete a move to Barcelona, thus ending months of speculations about his future.
According to Catalunya Radio, Frenkie de Jong prefers a move to the Camp Nou despite concrete interest from Ligue 1 giants Paris-Saint Germain.
The player’s agent has reportedly informed other interested parties in the likes of Manchester City, PSG, and Juventus, that his client prefers a move to Barcelona.
Barcelona are eager to finalize the deal and will proceed by sending club delegates to Amsterdam on Wednesday to ensure that the player’s signature is secured ahead of the proposed move.
Frenkie de Jong will cost the Catalans a whopping £66 million, with the club intent on making the payment for the player in three installments.
