Amsterdam midfielder Frankie De Young hopes that the day will come when Argentine star Lionel Messi is about to wear the Barcelona shirt next season.
De Jong spoke after Ajax's competition crown and said: "I hope the day will come when I play with Messi, I have the curiosity to work with him, I will try to make many goals for him."
"I have had wonderful days at Ajax," he said in comments from the Spanish newspaper Sport. "It was a memorable moment, the team will always stay in my heart."
De Jong coached his Ajax title in Amsterdam for the 34th time in his history and participated in the trophy.
Barcelona had signed De Jong halfway through this season for 75 million euros, with the player officially leaving for the Catalan team in the new season.
