At the press conference, De Jong said: “Playing in Barcelona was my dream when I was a kid, and I thought I could do it.”
Shirt 21 is very special for me, and I feel comfortable with it, but we will see. There has always been a great relationship between the philosophy of Johan Cruyff and Barcelona. All the players here have great talent, and it’s easier for me in the midfield.
There were other clubs interested in my contract, which is normal, and my agent talked to them, but the decision to move to Barcelona was easy .. When the club president came to convince me I gave him my approval because he told me that they trust me and expect my success.
And his former colleague at Ajax Matthijs de Ligt said: “I would like to see him here with me in Barcelona, but he will decide with his agent the best option for him, and we were happy to oust Real Madrid from the Champions League with Ajax.”
It’s normal to have a competition in Barcelona, and I have to show my training as much as I have … It was a wonderful introduction to me here and I did not imagine it, to see the crowd cheering in my name … I can not wait to play in this club shirt
He Completed: “I certainly want to play alongside Messi and also the rest of the players, But it is too early to know how the way of the game will be played, I will only talk about football and not the terms of the contract. “
“Winning five clean in Madrid like Cruyff? We will see, I want to achieve good results with the team”
