Barcelona complete transfer of the son of new signing Frenkie De Jong's agent
BARCELONA have completed the signing of the son of the agent of their big summer capture Frenkie De Jong.
The brilliant Dutch midfielder agreed a deal to move to Spain from Ajax earlier this year and will soon link up with the club.
Now the Spanish giants have awarded a contract to Mike van Beijnen – whose dad Ali Durson happened to broker the deal which took De Jong, 22, to the Nou Camp.
The La Liga champions have handed a two-year deal to defender Van Beijnen and are ready to put him into their B Team squad.
The full-back, 20, was available as a free agent having spent a year with NAC Breda in Holland.
Ironically he knows De Jong well having come through the academy system of Willem II, where the superstar first trained as a child.
But since then their careers have gone in separate directions, with Van Beijnen only making nine appearances for the Breda under-21 team last season.
Barca have handed him a deal until 2021, setting a buyout clause in his contract at £89million.
Holland international De Jong is already regarded as one of the best midfielders in world football having helped Ajax to the Champions League semi-final last season.
Barcelona saw off competition from most of the big clubs across Europe to seal a £65m deal in January which allowed him to remain in Amsterdam for the remainder of the campaign.
