Ronald de Boer has come up with some pretty interesting claims about Barcelona’s plans for the summer transfer window.

The Dutchman was talking on Fox Sports and said that Ernesto Valverde’s men are keen on two Ajax starlets.

“I talked with Barca scouts a few days back. They want to sign Frenkie De Jong and De Ligt this summer and send them back to Ajax for one more season.”

There’s been plenty of rumours around De Ligt this summer already, and Ajax look to have a battle on their hands to keep hold of their teenager defender.

Both players look to be really good prospects but whether Ajax would be willing to let them both go to Barcelona next season remains to be seen.
