Frenkie de Jong is looking forward to his summer move to Barcelona and says he “can’t wait” to play alongside Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou.

The Dutch star will join on a five-year deal at the end of the season from Ajax and has this week given an interview to Barcelona where he’s talked about his summer switch.

“I feel emotional. I can’t wait to play with him. He’s the best player of all time. He’s the most complete,” he said.

“He can do everything, with or without the ball. He creates so many opportunities and has an incredible left foot. He’s so intelligent.. he’s on another level.”

De Jong also talked about how joining Barcelona is his “dream move” because he has always liked the club’s style of play and the players who have starred for Barca.
