Real Madrid battles Barcelona for Modric's replacement

According to Catalan outlet Mundo Deportivo, both clubs remain interested in Ajax starlet Frenkie de Jong despite having tried and failed to sign him this summer. The 21-year-old central midfielder has attracted interest from Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur on top of the interest believed to exist from Inter.

Overmars, the former Arsenal forward, also claimed that Barca's offers were "unfortunate" and that they did not "value De Jong".

Barcelona's pursuit of Frenkie de Jong hasn't stopped even though the transfer window is now shut.

Along with these features, Lexus says the camera lenses are heated and the housings keep raindrops from collecting on them. Brightness will also be automatically adjusted to increase visibility at night and in the bad weather, improving security.

LIVERPOOL star Georginio Wijnaldum has been impressed by the talent of Ajax youngster Frenkie de Jong.

"They may return for Frenkie in January, but players will not leave in that period". The Catalans can't afford to let him slip out of their grasp due to him being the flawless heir for Sergio Busquets, and even more importantly they can't afford to let Real sign him because they already have one of the strongest midfield in world football. Therefore, Barcelona could sign him in January and use him in the Champions League.

If De Jong leaves Ajax to join Barcelona in the winter transfer window, it will be really bad for the Dutch side as they will not get much time to rope in a replacement.

De Jong has started his professional football career at Willem II in 2014.

He has two Netherlands caps to his name, debuting as a second-half substitute during the 2 - 1 win over Peru last week, before starting in Sunday's 2 - 1 defeat to world champions France in Paris. "He is doing very well now, but we have often had Dutch players who first played very well then later became less".
