The La Liga champions have been heavily linked with the 21-year-old this summer, who they see as a potential replacement for Sergio Busquets.

Sport is reporting that De Jong has agreed to move to Barcelona, but the club are having problems agreeing a deal with Ajax. It is not known whether Barcelona will continue their pursuit to sign De Jong this summer or wait a year.

Ajax wants to keep De Jong this summer with Erik ten Hag telling FOX Sports that he expects his star players to stay except for Hakim Ziyech, “We have said together that we want to keep this core together”
