Ajax have sent Frenkie de Jong a goodbye message after he arrived in Barcelona to seal his transfer to the Spanish champions.

The Dutch champions have decorated a bus with a picture of the midfielder and the message ‘Barca, enjoy the future like we do.’

The club also took out a page in newspaper Mundo Deportivo to wish the 22-year-old good luck with his move to the Camp Nou.

De Jong passed his medical with the club on Friday morning and will be presented later in the day and speak at a press conference.

The Dutch star has already spoken about his happiness at joining his new club and how he is pleased his “idol” Lionel Messi is now his team-mate.
