Default Nigel de Jong Thread

Same old story, a defender being linked with Milan. Except this time the player in question sounds like the type of vesatile defender we need.

Channel4:

Milan are pondering a swoop for Juventus target Nigel De Jong, who is available on a free transfer in the summer.

As reported by Football Italia earlier this month, De Jong has attracted the interest of Juventus as a player of huge potential for the future but the versatile defender has now registered on the Rossoneri’s radar.

De Jong, whose father, Jerry, played for Holland in the 1990s, has come through the ranks of the Ajax academy and grown into one of the most promising players in the Netherlands.

He made his breakthrough two years ago when he won the competition for a right-back berth with Hatem Trabelsi. Since then, the 21-year-old has proven his ability to also play at left-back and on both wings.

These are exactly the sort of qualities that Carlo Ancelotti is looking for as he scours the transfer market for two defenders – one an experienced stopper and another a young player of promise.

De Jong has also received glowing reports from Holland manager and former Milan teammate Marco Van Basten, who is said to have recommended the ambitious Ajax starlet to Ancelotti.

Milan do face stiff opposition from Juve, though. The Bianconeri have a great relationship with the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, who negotiated with Juve sporting director Luciano Moggi in the deals that took Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Emmerson and Pavel Nedved to Turin.


As you all poo-poo-ed the notion of Simunic, what about this guy? I haven't seen a great deal of him, but I've heard alot of good things about him. Anyone know anything else? Would he be as good a solution as he sounds? Being free, he certainly sounds like Galliani's ideal transfer.

he doesn't just sound like a good player, he is a good player. and the even better part is that he is still young and can only get better. i've seen him play for the dutch national team as well as ajax. if we get him it'll be a sigh of relief for our defence, espcially the flanks. he is also great at attacking and has a great shot too. just hope this isn't just another rumour. MVB should hook him up with us or rather bring him when he replaces carletto in the summer.

yep. he's a good player....he's versatile enough to play in midfield too. i'd be really happy if this went through.

Anyone know what happened to his teammate John Heitinga? A few years ago there was a big buzz about him...has he fallen off abit? From what i saw of him he looked like a great prospect.

The last I saw of him he was letting goals in against Italy in that recent friendly. I think he still plays at Ajax, other than that I have heard nothing. So maybe no news is good news.

Well i have seen him play once or twice and he is kind of good. Still young!! I already mentioned about the possibility of bringing him in under the dream signing thread and is a much better option compared to the crappy defenders we have been linked with in the past.

I think he is good,and the best thing about him is that he is very universal,can play on both sides of defence,even in the centre,on the wings and also as a center midfielder,his other advantages are that he's young and we need a young defender,and he scores a lots of goals...his disadvantages are that he is maybe too young and small(174cm)...

I don't think these are his disadvantages. Our defenders are so old so we need young defender, although he is young, he has a lot of experience and i think some old players (such as Maldini, Costacurta, Stam, Cafu) they can help De Jong to become more and more mature. Do you think his height is so important? But if he play as a RB or LB, 174cm is enough.
I hope we can sign him, but i think the most important thing is that after we sign him, we should use him. I don't want to see he spend a lot of time on the bench at next season in Milan ( such as Jankulovski ).

I have seen him this year in Champions League .. and to say the truth .. I would love to have him in our team .. he plays in the Cafu place.. place where we need replacment momentally .. + he has good shoot & skills..

It will be good New Year present for Milan fans if they bring him.

FORZA MILAN !!

well, shows u don't know sh-- about soccer too, he isn't an "unknown" name but not a "big" name either, he's an upcoming player, just like all the present "known" players were once-upon-a-time.

were in the world do you get your info from or do you just like formulating stuff up?? johnny didn't play that game, if you saw anything at all it was probably vlaar letting in goals. he's still a good player, maybe even more versatile than de jong 'cos he can play CD & DM too, guess de jong's performances have been overshadowing his lately, i think we'll see more of him in the world cup next year.

Where in the world do you get the face to criticsize things when you yourself are the one who is wrong? Heitinga did play against Itlay, and he was awful. There was even some debate over an Italy goal as it looked liked he infact scored it past his own keeper. And he did lose his form, hence Juve and others dropping interest in him. And he isn't more versatile than De Jong as he can't play the wings like De Jong can, Heitinga is strictly a central player.
