Ajax’s Frenkie de Jong a doubt for Real Madrid clash

Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong is a doubt to face Real Madrid in the Champions League this week with a thigh problem, say reports.

Marca say the Dutch international, who has agreed a deal to join Barcelona this summer for €85m, is rated as highly doubtful after sustaining the injury in the weekend game against Heracles.

The Amsterdam-based club lost the Eredivisie tie to leave them six points adrift of Dutch league leaders PSV Eindhoven but will be concerned over the fitness of the 21-year-old.

Madrid travel to the Netherlands on Wednesday night for the first leg of the Round of 16 Champions League tie between the clubs.
