According to RAC1, Ajax director Marc Overmars has contacted Barcelona to once again state that Frenkie de Jong is not for sale. 

The Catalan giants have been constantly linked with De Jong so far this summer with the midfielder seen by Barcelona as the eventual successor to Sergio Busquets.

Ajax have always maintained that De Jong would remain in Amsterdam and RAC1 is reporting that Overmars called Barcelona technical director Eric Abidal to once again confirm that the 21-year-old is going nowhere.

Justin Kluivert has already left Ajax this summer and Hakim Ziyech is set to follow so Overmars is keen to keep hold of De Jong. Barcelona may now attempt to agree a deal which would see De Jong move in the summer of 2019 instead.
