De Jong Pens Emotional Tribute To Ajax As He Prepares To Join Barca

One of the finest young players in the world, Frenkie de Jong is set to join FC Barcelona next season. The midfielder has penned an emotional farewell to Ajax Amsterdam. Did you see it?

FC Barcelona at the start of the season announced that they had snapped up the exciting 22-year-old from Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam.

De Jong is seen as the long-term replacement for Barca stalwart, Sergio Busquets.

As he makes his way to the hallowed ground that is the Camp Nou, De Jong has taken to Instagram to share a touching tribute to the club who honed his skill since joining the first team in the 2016/17 season.

“From the first day I came in here, I felt at home thanks to the lovely people who work at this club. I enjoyed the way people think about football and how it should be played. The quality of the staff and the players I was allowed to play and work with was amazing. Every day I came to the club with great pleasure and I want to thank everyone who does something for Ajax. Supporters you were great! During the European evenings, there was a great atmosphere that I will not forget. This season we conquered Europe, we won the cup and the 34th national title. I am very proud to have been able to play for this fantastic club. AFC Ajax thanks,” the young midfielder shared with his followers.

Barca fans will hope that De Jong will hit the ground running for the Blaugrana.

Do you think that De Jongh can become one of the best players in the world?
