A few minutes after dealing the Dutch domestic double, Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong confessed that he’s really excited to start his new era at Barcelona.
“I’m dying to see Messi in training, I think I will only pass him the ball, haha,” joked De Jong.
“I’m not going to change who I am. I don’t care if everyone looks at me in Barcelona. I’m curious to know how I will adapt there and anxious to learn from the best in the world who will surround me,” he told Fox Sports.
De Jong may be accompanied by his best friend at Ajax, Matthijs de Ligt, whom Barcelona are trying to procure.
