Real Madrid 'join Frenkie de Jong race'

Real Madrid 'join Frenkie de Jong race'”

The 21-year-old central midfielder has attracted interest from Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur on top of the interest believed to exist from Inter.

LIVERPOOL star Georginio Wijnaldum has been impressed by the talent of Ajax youngster Frenkie de Jong.

The midfielder, who can also play in defence, made his senior worldwide debut in the current global break, and didn't look out of place against the world champions during the Netherlands' 2-1 loss to France on Sunday night.

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

However, De Jong confirmed earlier this summer that he meant to play in the Champions League with the Dutch giants this season, ending talk of a €50 million (£44.5m/$58m) transfer, for now. The Catalans wanted to sign the young Ajax midfielder. "Maybe someday I'll join Barcelona, but not this season", he said.

We'll have to wait and see how things develop and if Tottenham are successful in their attempts to sign Chillwell and de Jong it would set them back around £85m - but it could be money well spent for two exciting youngsters.

De Jong began his career with Willem II Tilburg in 2015, making his debut against FC Den Haag in May of that year.

The report also added that Real Madrid who are the reigning European League champions are ready to offer Ajax massive sum of €80m to lure Jong to the Bernabeu. They were denied in the summer due to Ajax qualifying for the Champions League group stages, with De Jong honouring the team's desire to keep as much of the squad together as possible in order to mount an assault on the league and Champions League.
