De Jong: "I was really excited when I heard I could move to Barça. When the decision was made I was really happy and celebrated a bit with my family."
"President Bartomeu is a really good guy. He told me all the things about Barça, he helped me a lot."
"I always dreamed of Barça as a kid. I always wanted to play for them; I like the players, the style. Barça is my dream club."
"I hope I will be an important player for Barcelona. I hope I can be a starter, to win a lot of trophies with Barça. That are my goals for the moment."
"Playing with Lionel Messi? I am excited for it, I am looking forward to it. In my opinion he is the greatest player ever."
"It is difficult to define Messi. He is the most complete player, he can do everything with the ball, and without. He creates a lot of chances, his left foot is amazing, he is so smart... He is just at another level."
"When the Barça interest became real I asked Overmars, Ajax’s sporting director, about Barça and he told me if you get the chance you have to go there."
"Johan Cruyff was just pure football. He was an amazing, talented football and great person."
"I think the style of Barça and the style of Ajax are a bit similar. They both want to play good football, attack a lot, have a lot of possession."
"I think I can play in every position in the midfield."
