Barcelona’s newest midfielder, soon enough anyways, Frenkie de Jong talked pretty excitedly about training with Lionel Messi. The interview itself is pretty great, De Jong looks like a kid who just found out he’s going to the chocolate factory for a week. You gotta love genuine excitement from a footballer.

“I am so excited to see Messi during training, I think I am just going to pass every ball to him!” he said.

”I won’t change the way I am no matter if I will receive more spotlights at Barcelona. I am curious how I will perform there and I am eager to learn from the best around me there.”

De Jong will be a welcomed addition to Barcelona. A midfield that needed some youth in it is about to get a 22-year-old star.
