Real Madrid enter the race for De Jong

Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars has revealed that Barcelona's offer for Frenkie de Jong this summer fell short of Ajax's valuation, and ruled out a January exit for the youngster. His impressive performances have also seen him handed his debut for the Netherlands, and now de Jong is unquestionably one of the Eredivisie's hottest talents.

Real Madrid will not give Barcelona a free run at Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong. The Catalans can't afford to let him slip out of their grasp due to him being the ideal heir for Sergio Busquets, and even more importantly they can't afford to let Real sign him because they already have one of the strongest midfield in world football.

Real Madrid are the latest side reportedly interested in him, with Tottenham also planning a move, however, the 21-year-old has made it clear previously that his preference is Barca.

However, Overmars is adamant de Jong will not be leaving the club, even if Barca were to make an improvement on Tottenham's offer.

"They may return for Frenkie in January, but players will not leave in that period".

They involve almost 300,000 Russian troops along with 1,000 Russian aircraft and 36,000 tanks and other combat vehicles. Russia's biggest-ever war games Vostok-2018 "have kicked off" in far eastern Russian Federation .

De Jong, who made his senior global debut for Holland earlier this month, played the full 90 minutes as they lost to France in the UEFA Nations League on Sunday evening.

He is also incredibly comfortable playing in the heart of his team's defence, and his versatility is believed to be a major reason behind Barcelona's interest in the 21-year-old.

"Maybe someday I'll join Barcelona, but not this season", he told NOS last month.

De Jong is under contract at Ajax until 2022, so any bid would have to be astronomical to be accepted.
