Real Madrid will not give Barcelona a free run at Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong. But the Ajax management made it clear that De Jong is not for sale. However, they are believed to be still in talks with Ajax, as they grow anxious over interest in the 21-year old from other clubs, mainly from Tottenham Hotspur.
Manchester City, Tottenham and Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest in the De Jong, who made his worldwide debut last week, and a new round of bidding is expected in January. "Players will not leave in that period".

If De Jong leaves Ajax to join Barcelona in the winter transfer window, it will be really bad for the Dutch side as they will not get much time to rope in a replacement.
He added: "He is doing very well now, but we have often had Dutch players who first played very well, but later became less". De Jong has also guided AFC Ajax in the Europa League Final in 2017.
