Cruyff says Barcelona targets De Ligt and De Jong ready for 'big move'

Former Barcelona striker Jordi Cruyff says Ajax pair Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong are ready for a "big" move.

The young duo are being linked with a €150m move to Barca.

And Cruyff said, "De Ligt and De Jong are special players, they are prepared for a big one; they have taken Ajax and the Netherlands up to as high as they can."

Cruyff was wanted by Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu for a front office role last season.

But he added: "The return home is inevitable, I'll end up in Europe, but right now I'm fine in China."

Cruyff is currently in charge of Chongqing Dangdai Lifan.
