Frenkie De Jong to Manchester City?

5 Dec

This is a guest post from Linus.

Manchester City are the latest in the long line of European giants who are interested in the in-form Dutch midfielder Frenkie De Jong. The 21 year old has been in splendid form easily catching the eyes of various European teams and City could be forced to part with £75 million if they wish to have a realistic chance of getting the Ajax midfielder.

Manchester City are in red hot form in the Premier league this season and they offer some of the best values for any punt. Get them today with and join the winning team. City are among the favorites in this year’s Champions league too.

Top Player
De Jong is a top midfielder that any team would be lucky to land and he joining City would be a huge boost to the Citizens who missed out on signing Chelsea midfielder Jorginho in the summer.

The Ajax man plays well in a number six role that has three midfielders and these has seen him flourish in both club and country football this year. 

Even though that City team is laden with talent, there is still room for the Ajax wonder boy who can easily replace 33 year old Fernandinho natural who doesn’t have any back up.

De Jong has lit up the Eredivisie for Ajax in the past seasons with his great composition of passing as well as dribbling skills that have made him stand out. He topped the passing as well as the dribbling success rate in the Eredivisie last season with 91% and 90.3% respectively.

Spanish giants Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the midfielder and will be throwing their weight in to the ring to fight it out with Barcelona, Manchester United and many other teams.

Rapid Rise
The 21 year old’s recent popularity across the football world has also gone side by side with the recent resurrection of the Netherlands national team in the international scene after a torrid period that had seen them struggle so much. After the disappointment of missing out on the World Cup, the Dutch seem to have woken up from the slumber and their uprising has seen them book a spot into the last stages of the Nations League.

In their last international fixture of the year, De Jong played 90 minutes as the Dutch came from a 2 goal deficit to walk out of Germany with a point that was crucial in their Nations League campaign. The Dutch shocked the Germans with 2 goals in the last five minutes of the game through Quincy Promes and Virgil Van Dijk. This saw them join the likes of England, Switzerland and Portugal in the last four.

In the Dutch league where De Jong plays, they are second in the standings and the City target has been in fine form leading the team in the midfield in this year’s Champions league even though they are bottom of their group having been paired in one of the toughest groups this season. They trail Barcelona, Tottenham and Inter Milan respectively.

Manchester City, who are in fine form will be one of the teams that the Dutchman will fancy playing for and with the guidance of Pep Guadiola, they are the clear favorites to land the 21 year old. Additionally, Man City has the financial muscle to fight it out with any other club in Europe.
