Frenkie de Jong was born on May 12, 1997. He is a professional Dutch footballer who plays as a midfielder for the Spanish club Barcelona and the Netherlands national team. He is a versatile playmaker who is known for his strong defensive abilities.

De Jong decided to sign with Barcelona in January 2019, after his breakthrough season and signed with the team in July for a fee of EUR 75 million. He was one of three Dutch players selected for the 2019 FIFA Pro World11 tournament for the first time in five years.

De Jong made his senior international debut for the Netherlands in September 2018. He made his debut in the inaugural UEFA Nations League, where the Netherlands placed second. Frenkie de Jong is a strong dribbler and is known for his incredible throwing power. A combination that has propelled him to the top of the football world's talent rankings. Almost all of his mentors praised him for his willingness to interpret the game and come up with crucial interceptions.

Frenkie had the strongest season of his career in 2018-2019, winning the Ajax domestic treble and reaching the Champions League semi-final. We'll start with some background information on the Dutch midfielder, and then we'll go through some of the more interesting details regarding Frenkie de Jong.

This midfielder plays in the Spanish La Liga with FC Barcelona. He joined Barça after spending many years with AFC Ajax in the Dutch Eredivisie. FC Barcelona paid a record price of 75+11 million euros for him. What a fantastic acquisition he has become for Barça. This is an example of a traditional Dutch master. He has outstanding vision and a brilliant methodology. He is most often used as a central midfielder, although he has also appeared at center back. 

He was born in the Dutch town of Arkel. Tilburg is a tiny village near Tilburg (the home of Eredivisie club Willem II). He began his career at Willem II's youth academy, but he was quickly purchased by Ajax, who saw his immense talent as well. Ajax levied a one-euro swap charge. While this seems to be the bargain of the century, Willem II did get a 10% re-sell bonus. Willem II received 10% of the transfer fee as he was sent to Barça. He's already had some impressive results in the Champions League with Ajax, and everybody in his homeland is waiting for him to leap Super Stardom in Barcelona.

Frenkie De Jong Early Life

Frenkie De Jong's father, who was born in 1997 to a sports-loving family, was an amateur football player for ASV Arkel, and his mother was also a football player. His parents' sporting roots can be traced back to his grandparents, who was also an avid football player.

Frenkie used to play football for ASV Arkel when he was younger. Many parents at the club appreciated his curiosity and the potential that a little boy like him had. Frenkie's enviable skills had also drawn the attention of agents as early as the age of 5, who wished to take the promising young player away from his local club.

Frenkie's father believed that his son was mature enough to play professional football at the age of seven and sent him to Willem II and Feyenoord for trials, all of which his parents supported. As a young boy of incredible football ability who was forced to choose aside, Frenkie found it very straightforward to clear both trials. Frenkie de Jong surprised his parents by choosing Willem II.

As soon as Frenkie entered the Willem II youth system in 2004 at the tender age of 7, the club coaches worked tirelessly to help him grow into a player with tremendous potential. Most of Willem II's modern form of play was perfected. Frenkie also demonstrated that he was a dedicated player who worked hard to develop his skills.

Frenkie De Jong Profile And Professional Football Career Willem II (2014–2015)

Frenkie has little trouble progressing through the ranks of the squad thanks to his abilities and unwavering will to excel. Because of his outstanding games, he became one of his coaches' favorite stars, such as Jos Bogers, the U-15 coach, who referred to Frenkie as a natural player. As he made his Eredivisie debut in May 2015, his abilities quickly secured him a place in the first squad. Following his debut, several teams attempted to sign the young star athlete. In the summer of 2015, he finally agreed to sign a contract with Ajax.

Contract With Ajax (2015–2019)

In the summer of 2015, Frenkie signed a four-year contract with Ajax, the top Dutch team. He transferred to Ajax for €1 million, including a 10% payment for the disposal of Frenkie in the future. He was loaned back to Willem II after he arrived at Ajax in August, but was back in play with Ajax in December.

Frenkie returned to Ajax and competed in the Eerste Divisie for Jong Ajax. Frenkie earned the league's Talent of the Season award in his last season in the Eerste Divisie, the 2016/17 season. Frenkie appeared in the Eredivisie for Ajax first team that season, as well as in the Europa League final as an 82nd-minute replacement. Frenkie, along with national team and club colleague Matthijs de Ligt, helped boost the squad's success in the 2017/18 season. Frenkie suffered a ligament tear after playing in 22 games this season.

Frenkie became a worldwide phenomenon the next season, as he teamed up with Matthijs de Ligt to guide Ajax to a fantastic season. Because of his outstanding results, he was named Eredivisie Player of the Month in December 2018 and February 2019. Frenkie played a key role in Ajax's national treble, which included the championship and domestic cup victories.

Ajax beat Juventus in the UEFA Champions League to meet Tottenham Hotspurs in a semifinal match that saw both De Ligt and Frenkie bring in outstanding performances. Even though Frenkie lost the match, he received praise for his performance. He was named to the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League Team of the Season and was named the Tournament's Midfielder.

Barcelona (2019–present)

Frenkie agreed with a five-year deal with Laliga giants Barcelona in January 2019 for about €75 million. On July 1, 2019, the deal formally started. He made his Barcelona debut on August 16, 2019, in a La Liga match versus Athletico Bilbao, in which Barcelona won 1–0.

Frenkie De Jong Net Worth

Frenkie de Jong has a net worth of €12 million as of 2021. The midfielder agreed on a deal with FC Barcelona in 2019 that pays him a staggering 16 million euros (14.3 million pounds) per year. According to our calculations, he receives €43,716 (£39,211) a day and €1,821 (£1,634) per hour!

Style Of Play

At his age, he has the potential to become a Xavi or an Iniesta. De Jong will play regista, defensive midfielder, central midfielder, holding, midfielder box-to-box, and back center. Frenkie describes himself as a professional who "enjoys having the ball and playing possession." He's been lauded for his combination of defensive versatility and playmaking abilities. At Ajax, he mainly worked with Matthijs de Light at center-back.

As a center-back, he avoided fouls, showed outstanding tactical awareness, and consistently won possession. His results earned him a deal with former German sweeper Franz Beckenbauer in this more protective role, which compared his willingness to progress from safety to German legend in possession and play-making.

"We saw the other day that De Jong was a player who had the potential to usher in a new age in Barcelona. He can win the game, he sees it clearly, and he never loses the ball. To act defensively, he still takes concessions. I believe they are top-tier players who can benefit Barca greatly." 

An ability for deep cross-field passes, room formation, and offensive pressure absorption are among his other qualities. His close dominance, accuracy, work pace, and action drew comparisons to Andres Iniesta and Johan Cruyff. He mainly appeared on either side of the core three-man midfield in Barcelona. As a result, critics and former players have dubbed him a professional of "Barça DNA" who was "selected to play for Barcelona."

Frenkie De Jong Goal Celebration

With a target celebration, Gini Wijnaldum and Frenkie de Jong offer a powerful anti-racism note. Holland sent a strong warning to the rest of Europe with a 5-0 win over Estonia in their final Euro 2020 qualifier.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Frenkie de Jong, on the other hand, sent a slightly stronger message to the wider football world in one of their goal celebrations. After Liverpool's early goal, he dashed to the sidelines alongside his Barcelona counterpart, holding their arms side-by-side and pointing at their skin.

Frenkie De Jong Relationships

Frenkie has been dating Mikky Kiemeney, a hockey player. The two recently met and began dating. The explanation for this was the allure and love for sports that both of them possessed. Mikky has been with Frenkie since he was in Willem II's Youth System. The pair is now happily married and lives in Amsterdam. One of the many reasons we might call the pair perfect is because they have almost similar smiles, which isn't cute.

Philanthropy

Humanitarian service is a wonderful thing that most footballers do, but it always goes overlooked by the public. Frankie has not yet undertaken any humanitarian service, even if he has, none has been reported in the papers, but we would have to wait to see if he will.
