    He’s been playing at CB for a while now so Fred playing wouldn’t hamper de Jong. He’s best played at a CB, Sandler who we’ve bought has a similar style but de Jong is top level right now.

    No, De Jong is much more of a natural at what Pep wants.

    He's 20 and doing the things Pep has taught Stones to do over 2 years at 23/24 years old. He's also so good at understanding the game that he can play CB, defensive midfield or attacking midfield. Stones and Laporte are great players, and "Pep players" but De Jong is something else.

    We couldn't give him enough game time at CB or defensive midfield at the moment, but if some older players left in a year or 18 months time, there'd probably be space for him to play across both positions.

    So basically a box to box defender. Snap him up now while he's still at Ajax.

    Quality player.
    Game time may be an issue.
    Our squad age is quite young now & it may be difficult to bring youngsters like Foden into the side for regular matches.
    Would love to sign De Jong though.

    I know, but game over.

    We spent 57m on Laporte and will spend 50m on Fred this summer which means there is no vacancy for another +50m player to sit/ rotate.

    Isn't there a 20year old above him in the midfield pecking order?
