- Real Madrid have joined the race to sign Ajax star Frenkie de Jong
- He is also a target for Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona
Real Madrid are ready to challenge their bitter rivals Barcelona for the signature of 21-year-old Dutch professional footballer Frenkie De Jong who plays for Ajax.
During the last summer transfer, Barcelona were said to have had their bid turned down by Ajax chiefs, although the Catalan giants will still go again when the January transfer window opens.
But this time around, Barcelona won't have it easy as Real Madrid have also joined the race to sign Frenkie de Jong according to the report on Tribal.
The report also added that Real Madrid who are the reigning European League champions are ready to offer Ajax massive sum of €80m to lure Jong to the Bernabeu.
Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Barcelona launched a bid for Ajax star Frenkie de Jong following their failure to land French World Cup winning star Paul Pogba this summer.
According to Mirro Sport, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho doesn't want the former Juventus star to leave without recruiting perfect replacement for him.
