Barcelona’s pursuit of Ajax midfielder Frenkie De Jong is back on according to Diario Sport. The rumors around a potential deal between the two have been going around for months. But the deal hasn’t gone through for what has been reported for a variety of reasons.

One of them is obviously price. Both clubs have leaked prices they want for the deal to the press. But the main reason that the deal might really be back on is that Barcelona weren’t able to land a bigger star for the midfield that they had hoped for, yet.

If the deal ends up going through it’ll likely be around the €50m mark. We’ll have to wait to see how the deal shakes out.
