Barcelona's signing of Frenkie De Jong has long been planned by the Catalan club. The player's reaction has been, after initially expressing joy at playing with Lionel Messi, a bit distant.
Sport 360 carry quotes from the Dutchman. "At the start it was fun and I felt flattered by the stories about Barcelona, but after some time the questions became annoying," he told EFL Voetbal.
"For the moment I'm staying at Ajax, at least another year and maybe two or three more, I'm really enjoying it here," added the 21 year old.
Barcelona have also not liked the attitude of his agent Ala Durson, who seems to be trying to create a transfer auction with other big clubs.
Barcelona want to avoid De Jong's price shooting up. He has a contract until 2022. The Catalans are also interested in singing his team-mate Matthijs De Ligt.
