Ajax director of football Marc Overmas has warned Barcelona to “do things well” in regards to their interest in starlets Frenkie De Jong and Matthijs De Ligt.

Barcelona are just one of several top clubs being heavily linked with the two players, and Overmars says the Spanish champions have competition for the duo.

“Barcelona is my favourite, it’s a fantastic club, but there are two other clubs that are very close. All of Europe is moving and Barça must do things well,” he said.

“Messi can help, money is not important for them, last year they could have gone with good offers and they decided to stay.

“They didn’t need me to speak well of Barça because they already know it.”

There seems little doubt that De Jong and De Ligt will leave Ajax next summer, but it still remains to be seen exactly where they will end up.
