The Camp Nou already expects to his new idol after the signing of Frenkie of Jong, announced this same Wednesday. The FC Barcelona will pay 75 million fixed euros more a variable part of 11. In total, the Dutch midfield player could go out by 86 million euros, a very high price but that seeing what is paying by other footballers, can become cheap.

In a recent interview for 'Voetbal primeur', the Dutch midfield player left some tracks on what dorsal could finish carrying in the FC Barcelona from the next season. The Dutch midfield player, in statements done to the quoted media, ensured that it does not pretend to carry the '14' of Johan Cruyff.

Of Jong considers that, in case to decide carry the dorsal '14', would be compared with the mythical footballer and Dutch trainer. "This would not be very wise. In the moment that carry this dorsal the only that achieve is a comparison immediately and think that would have to keep me moved away of her", said the recent signing culé.

It is necessary to say that it is not the first time that Frenkie of Jong escapes of the comparisons with his compatriot. "Deal of not doing case of the comparisons and concentrate me in what I have to do", commented, adding, on Cruyff, that "of course that it is well that compare you with him, but am very far of the level of Cruyff and never will be it, so I do not do me illusions in this regard".

The '6', dorsal more likely for Of Jong

It is true that Of Jong will not incorporate to the staff of the FC Barcelona until next summer, but the dorsal that will carry in his back seems quite clear. After refusing the '14' (of Malcom), everything seems to indicate that it will carry the '6', that at present is in power of Denis Suárez. The Galician midfield player will abandon the FC Barcelona with all security, by what his dorsal will remain free.

In this way, Frenkie of Jong would remain with a dorsal mythical for the FC Barcelona, since it lució a legend of the FC Barcelona like Xavi Hernández during a lot of years. The midfield player of Terrassa is considered the best midfield player of all time and lució that '6' during practically all his path like culé.
