Watch Frenkie De Jong glide past Ballon d'Or winner Modric during incredible Ajax win against Real Madrid

The 21-year-old midfielder shone for Ajax as they sensationally battered Real Madrid 4-1 in their own backyard.

That saw the Dutch giants progress into the Champions League quarter-finals and in the process dump out the reigning champs.

De Jong had some formidable opposition at the Bernabeu during the game – not least Ballon d'Or winner Luka Modric.

But as this clip shows, it was definitely the Ajax man that won the battle in the middle of the park.

In fact, he even managed to leave Modric flat on his backside as he glided past the Croatian star.


The victory was extra sweet for De Jong, as he will join Real Madrid's great rivals Barcelona on the summer.

SunSport even reported how the Dutch international was urged to dethrone the European champs when he signed his pre-contract agreement to join Barca.

Asked if Barca had advised him over how to deal with the Bernabeu crowd, he told De Telegraaf: "No not yet. Only during my contract signing, they said: try to knock out Real.

"That would also be great for Barca, of course."

De Jong was excellent, but Dusan Tadic stole the show for the Dutch side as the 13-time winners’ dream of claiming four crowns in a row were spectacularly obliterated at the Bernabeu.

The former Southampton star set up Hakim Ziyech and then David Neres to fire Ajax into a 2-0 lead after just 18 minutes before finding the top corner after the break.

Marco Asensio pulled one back but Lasse Schone’s outrageous free-kick completed the humiliation.

Netherlands international De Jong will move to the Nou Camp for £75million in the summer.
