Overmars: Barcelona didn't value De Jong correctly

Overmars: Barcelona didn't value De Jong correctly

Tottenham are ready to finally splash some cash as Mauricio Pochettino lines-up an £85m double January swoop for Ben Chillwell and Frenkie de Jong, according to reports via TeamTalk.

Barca, however, remain keen - but will face competition from Real.

In case you didn't know.


The Lilywhites, who ended the summer window without any incomings, have a concrete interest in signing De Jong and are understood to have made contact with Ajax last week.

The midfielder, who can also play in defence, made his senior global debut in the current worldwide break, and didn't look out of place against the world champions during the Netherlands' 2-1 loss to France on Sunday night.

The 21-year-old is earning a huge reputation in the Netherlands having starred with Ajax, showing outstanding technique, control, passing ability, dribbling and maturity.

Real rate De Jong highly and believe he can cover the positions of "Casemiro, (Toni) Kroos and (Luka) Modric". Mundo Deportivo report that the La Liga champions' second bid reached €30 million but was not even considered by Ajax.

However, De Jong confirmed earlier this summer that he meant to play in the Champions League with the Dutch giants this season, ending talk of a €50 million (£44.5m/$58m) transfer, for now.

I leave that to my agent. There may be a club tomorrow that offers so much that you are away.

"A lot has been written about him lately, so I've been watching how he plays at Ajax".

If the Spanish giants are truly eager to land De Jong, they will have to offer an astronomical sum in exchange for his services next summer. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.
