Barcelona fear Spurs, Man City joining De Jong battle

Barcelona fear fresh competition for long-term target Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona are stepping up attempts to secure the signing of De Jong for next summer, fearing his international debut and forthcoming Champions League bow could inflate his value and alert other clubs.

De Jong, 21, has become a transfer priority for the club with technical secretary Robert Fernandez meeting his agent three times this summer as well as Ajax director of football Mark Overmars.

Barca believe Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham are all interested in the Dutchman.
