Player Profile: Frenkie de Jong was born 12 May 1997 in Arkel,Netherlands and is a Dutch professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Ajax and the Netherlands national team. He is youth product of Willem II, On 10 May 2015, De Jong made his Eredivisie debut against ADO Den Haag by substitution to replace Terell Ondaan in a 1–0 home win. In the summer of 2015, De Jong joined AFC Ajax on a four-year contract Then he helped Ajax to the 2017 Europa League final. De Jong's states throughout the 2016–17 season for Ajax saw him being awarded the Jupiler League's Talent of the Season award.On 23 January 2019, FC Barcelona announced that they will be signing De Jong with the club on a five-year contract from 1 July 2019,for a transfer cost of €75m, plus a further €11m in possible add-ons. Netherlands National career: De Jong made 22 appearances for various Netherlands youth teams. On 10 July 2015, De Jong made his international debut for the Netherlands Uunder 19 team against Germany Under 19.On 9 June 2018, De Jong made his senior team international debut in a friendly against Peru where the Netherlands won the match. Can he be Transfer Flop: There are many reason that the young dutch player can fail in Barcelona. He has not yet played in good League like La Liga which is natural for young player but it is very difficult to settle in different League than you are used to play.Every young player struggles in there first season and many can't handle the pressure of playing in the big stage for eg, Memphis Depay was amazing young talent signed by Manchester United and was given Number 7 jersey but could not live up to the hope of fans cause of pressure but now in doing well in his current club Olympique Lyonnais . I don't want this to happen to De Jong as he is being compared of one of the most legendary footballer Johan Cruyff and this could put him under tremendous pressure to,lets pray for the best. Next Superstar for Barcelona: Like I pointed out his chances of failure, He has more chances of success at Catalonia with Barcelona. He can learn from the most experienced players in the world.He will be given best facility to learn and he will be playing with great clubs in Champions League as well as Real and Atletico Madrid in La Liga. He is perfect for Barcelona playing style which is quick pass and one touch and there has not been a great replacement for Xavi and Iniesta after there departure but he can be that player if he keeps his head high and play without any fear. Barcelona is surely aiming for a permanent replacement Sergio Busquets as he is getting older and id De jong playes well he can surely do so and right his name in Barcelona history books.
