Official: Barcelona sign De Jong

Barcelona have officially announced a deal to sign Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong for up to €86m in June, a former Juventus and PSG target.

The 21-year-old Dutch international is already a sensation and tipped to become a superstar in future.

This prompted a bidding war with Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.

It had been whittled down to the French and Catalan club, but this evening Barcelona confirmed the contract had been signed.

The cost of the operation is €75m plus up to €11m in various performance-related bonuses.

De Jong has signed a five-year deal that runs to June 2024.
