& # 39; Give him a statue & # 39 ;: Jokes from Barcelona fans Frenkie De Jong is already a club legend before they play a single game after new signing helps Real Madrid and now Cristiano Ronaldo from the Champions League knock out to beat
The fans of Barcelona are already very happy with Frenkie De Jong, despite the fact that the Dutchman has not kicked a ball in their club colors.
De Jong has signed a preliminary agreement with the Catalans and will make the switch to the Nou Camp in the summer.
Until then, however, he remains an Ajax player, and his team has delivered some incredible performances on the European stage – to the great advantage of Barca.
The impressive Frenkie de Jong helped Ajax fight its way to the Champions League semi-final
In the final 16 round, Ajax Barca & # 39; s archenemy Real Madrid won unbelievably, before Juventus was eliminated in the quarterfinals and knocked out ex-nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo.
Fans were quick to praise the 21-year-old, who they hope will lead them into a new era.
& # 39; Buy him a statue & # 39 ;, an enthusiastic supporter wrote online, clearly exaggerated by the occasion.
& # 39; Barca blood is already flowing through him & # 39 ;, another added after seeing De Jong playing in a dominating and composed performance in Turin.
Barcelona & # 39; s old enemy Cristiano Ronaldo was dumped from Europe with thanks to Ajax and De Jong
Barca himself has also advanced to the semi-final of the top competition of European football and will compete in the last four against Liverpool or Porto.
In the meantime, Ajax will compete with the winners of Manchester City and Tottenham for a place in the Madrid final.
Should the Dutch club beat the odds again and overcome a new hurdle, and Barca would also advance, then De Jong could compete against his new club in the final.
Barca fought the competition from City and Paris Saint Germain to acquire De Jong's services and ended with the sum of £ 65 million to get the deal over.
