Frenkie Of Jong was presented officially with the FC Barcelona this Friday, and showed sonriente at all times while it posed with the new Barcelona T-shirt, signed his agreement, some autographs and gave ones touch to the balloon on the lawn of the Camp Nou, before recalcar in press conference the happy that is to have fichado by the best club of the world.

It knew that his T-shirt lucirá the name 'F. Of Jong'. Neither 'Frenkie', as when seeming wanted the mark Nike to commercialise better his sale of T-shirts; neither neither 'Of Jong', as in theory went to remain form his name in the elastic culé. What does not have desvelado still is the dorsal that will dress the next season 2019-20 to the orders of Ernesto Valverde.

Of course it is a lower detail, and is possible that the Dutch expect to that it finish the market of signings 2019 and the staff of the Barça was already defined to know which are the dorsal that has to his disposal, when being conscious that of here at the end of the summer still can produce some exits that would free dorsal in the staff.

The initial will of Frenkie of Jong always has been lucir the '21', that is the dorsal that dressed in the Ajax of Amsterdam. "I seat me comfortable with the 21, is the one who carried in the Ajax, but still do not know the dorsal that luciré", said during the presentation this Friday. The past season 2018-19 said dorsal belonged to Carles Aleñá, that did with him when it was given of high like player of the first team in the market of winter.

Since the T-shirts of the Barça customised with name and number, distinct players of status varied have lucido the '21' in the FC Barcelona. Robert Prosinecki was the first, but Luis Enrique Martínez (1996-2004) was the most emblematic, whereas also it obtained said dorsal the central French Lilian Thuram during the two seasons that was in the Camp Nou (2006-08).

After the Frenchman fell in the Byelorussian Alexander Hleb (2008-09) and, later, in the Ukrainian Dmitro Chygrynskiy. Afterwards it was in being able to of the Brazilian Adriano Correia between 2010 and 2016, and from here went to stop to the back of the Portuguese André Gomes, that carried it during the two seasons that was in the group culé before putting course to the Everton.

Now you saw it Carles Aleñá, and is an incógnita if the canterano Catalan will decide to yield the number to Frenkie of Jong and bet by another dorsal of which remain free. It will be question that both speak and arrive to an agreement. And, if said option is not viable, to Of Jong neither will matter him too much choose another distinct number to start with to make history in the FC Barcelona.
