Barca and Ajax set for loan link-up deal

1st April 2019, 15:14 by Neil Foster

There is the possibility of a loan agreement with La Liga giants Barcelona, according to Ajax director of football Marc Overmars.

The clubs already enjoy an excellent relationship, with the likes of Isaac Cuenca and Bojan Krkic moving on loan from the Nou Camp to Amsterdam in recent years.

Overmars himself played for both clubs, while Ajax's Johan Cruyff Arena is named after a legend of Dutch football who graced both outfits during an illustrious career.

Ajax's Frenkie de Jong is set to make the switch to the Catalans this summer, while Matthijs de Ligt has also been heavily linked, and after admitting that any proposal is in the early stages, Overmars confessed dialogue is on the agenda.

"We know that we are on good terms with Barcelona," he told Voetbal Zone. "Barcelona wants to talk to us, to see if they can loan us players.

"But there is always just one thing to do. We aren't, of course, going to get too many players from Barcelona. We're not a branch of that club. But the plans haven't been developed that far."
