Ajax midfielder Frenkie De Jong has agreed to join Barcelona, according to reports in Spain.
Radio Catalunya say the in-demand Dutch midfielder has made his final decision and has informed both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain he intends to head to the Nou Camp.
The Holland international has been wanted by almost all of Europe’s top clubs and the big-money trio emerged as the leading contenders for his signature.
But the 21-year-old has decided to become Barcelona’s third January signing, alongside Jason Murillo and Kevin-Prince Boateng.
He is set to travel to Spain to formally complete the deal, which could be worth up to £80million, on Wednesday.
It means Pep Guardiola has missed out on one of his top targets, viewed as a long-term replacement for Fernandinho.
Guardiola has recently admitted they have drawn up a shortlist to replace the ageing Brazilian, but De Jong’s move to Spain could force them to cross one name off the list and look elsewhere.
