Barca still targeting de Jong, Ajax UCL route is decisive
- Gerard Romero claims that Barcelona still wish to bring Frenkie de Jong to the club this summer
- However, it all depends on how Ajax finish their qualification for the Champions League group stage
As it is stated by reliable Gerard Romero, Barca haven't yet cleared Frenkie de Jong from their radars.
The Dutchman is still in demand from Ajax's Marc Overmars who has already stated he'd like to see the youngster in action this season, but there was a hint insinuating that de Jong would be particularly necessary in case the club moves onto the UCL group stage.
And there's still way to go. Barcelona hope Ajax won't reach the group stage so that the purchase of the promising midfielder would be much easier and could be carried out this summer.
Ernesto Valverde reportedly wants to have at least 2 more players at his team before the season starts, and the Spanish media still predict one of them is Frenkie de Jong.
