The deal done? De Jong and De Ligt spotted in Barcelona


Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt are currently in Barcelona.

Rejoice, Cules! Both Frenkie de Jong AND Matthis de Ligt have arrived in Barcelona late on Friday night. However, it’s not for – as you might have thought – Frenkie’s presentation and Matthijs’ long-awaited contract signing with Blaugrana.

In fact, the duo has landed at El Prat Airport with the rest of Ajax team to celebrate their spectacular season.

Both de Jong and de Ligt have been nice enough to pose for some photos with Barca fans who spotted them in the airport.


The midfielder and the centre-back have experienced a truly magical season with Ajax finishing the 2018/2019 campaign with a domestic double and a long run in the Champions League that unfortunately ended in the semifinals against Tottenham.

While there are still some doubts about de Ligt joining his friend Frenkie at Barca, the latter is set to become a Barcelona player starting from July 1.
