Frenkie de Jong has told Ajax team-mate Matthijs de Ligt to join him in making the switch to Barcelona this summer.

De Jong has already agreed a five-year deal with the Catalan giants, while rumours abound that Ernesto Valverde’s side also want to bring in De Ligt this summer.

The midfielder says he does not know what De Ligt will do next but that he would be more than happy to see him rock up at the Camp Nou.

“I honestly don’t know what Matthijs is going to do [this summer],” he said. “He has to know for himself, but I would certainly go to Barcelona.

“It would be great for me, and for Barça it would be great to get such a good player who you can continue with for a long time.”
