Lionel Messi has spoken highly of Ajax duo Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt.

De Jong and De Ligt have both been linked with a move to Barcelona next summer and during a conversation with Marca, Messi was asked about the Ajax duo.

He responded, “They are trained according to a school that is very similar to ours. The style is practically the same, just as with us the emphasis is on possession. They are two young, very good footballers. “

Sport is claiming that De Jong has agreed a deal with the Catalan giants, but De Telegraaf is sticking to their claim that the 21-year-old is going to PSG.

De Ligt is reportedly the centre of a bidding war with Juventus currently favourites for the 19-year-old defender.
