The 21-year-old said the initial links to Barca were “fun,” but he has been turned off by the constant speculation engulfing his burgeoning career.
Speaking to Elf Voetbal (h/t Chris Burton of Goal), De Jong said:
“In the beginning it was fun and I felt very flattered by the stories around Barcelona, but after a while the questions about it got annoying.
For the time being, I just stay with Ajax, at least another year and maybe two or three more years. I’m really enjoying myself here.”
