BREAKING NEWS: Barcelona win race for Frenkie De Jong ahead of PSG

It seemed all and signed for. Frenkie De Jong was going to join Thomas Tuchel’s Paris St Germain side. They even put on a show as they dispatched EA Guingamp 9-0 last week, but there’s been a turn in the tide…

Catalan giants Barcelona have swooped in and taken the Dutch midfielder from the clutches of the Parisiens according to Mundo Deportivo.

Club President Josep Maria Bartomeu and former Barca man Eric Abidal were among the club’s officials who travelled to Amsterdam to match or even better PSG’s promises.

The Ligue 1 side offered £70m, which was quickly accepted by Ajax, and a huge wage hike for De Jong of around £200,000 per week, but it seems the light may have finally shined on Frenkie and he has chosen the Camp Nou as his next destination.

HEIR TO THE THRONE: De Jong would be an ideal replacement for Busquets

The Blaugrana need a successor to the ageing Sergio Busquets, and Frenkie De Jong fits the bill perfectly. The 21-year-old averages 80 passes per game, at least one of them creating a goal-scoring chance; he would fit right in with Barcelona’s ethos of passing teams to death, a perfect fit.
