Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong has come over all coy when asked about the possibility of a move to Barcelona next year.

Apparently the 20-year-old was asked by Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf about a report in Mundo Deportivo that he would play for Barcelona in 2019.

De Jong’ response was: “I can not say anything about it. (smiles) At the moment, there is nothing to say.”

MD reported earlier this month that De Jong has become a bit of a priority after being scouted by Barcelona.

They want to bring him in next summer as they look to rejuvenate an ageing midfield.
