    This video illustrates his press-resistance very well. He's the real deal.

    Where do you think he'll play most in the future, defensive midfield or attacking midfield?

    I have a feeling he will play further forward. As for him joining City, I think Pep Guardiola might be inclined to play him further forward rather than as a holder becuase of the way City defend.

    Stopping counter attacks is their defensive perogative so I think a more mobile #6 would be preferable which is why I think Fernandinho is being currently underrated by a lot of the masses.

    Ok cool. I just can't see us getting De Jong then when we already have Silva, KDB, Gundogan & Bernardo Silva competing for those spots and Pep in love with Foden by all accounts Who also plays there.

    they get a great footballing education at Ajax.

    I'd imagine if he has the physicality to play here, he'd have no problem with the demands Guardiola places tactically and mentally on a player in his position.

    He looks quick and strong. Get him in.

    Looks like Pep's dream pivot.

    It's a yes from me.

    I’d be willing to plunk down €25M of Mansour’s money on that YouTube video!!!

    Big lad, light in his feet, strength enough to hold off a challenge, and can find a pass. Holds onto the ball a bit much for Pep, but knows which way forward is, which is very helpful to the way we play!

    Ok, €30M it is, but no more than €35M, OK?!

    Looks taylor made for us.
    Im sure Pep knows all about him.
    Be good to have a De Jong in the team again as well.
