Primera Division Barcelona champions have confirmed that striker Bojan Krkic will spend the 2013-14 season on loan at Eredivisie champions Ajax.
Bojan, 22, has spent the last two previous season on loan in the Serie A in Italy with Roma and AC Milan but after scoring seven goals in Milan, he struggled to gain a place in the first team and managed only three league goals.
The following statement was published on FCBarcelona.com this morning: “FC Barcelona and Ajax Amsterdam have reached agreement for the loan of Bojan Krkic to the Dutch club for the 2013-14 season.
“The Catalan striker – who will be 23 this August, will play under ex-Barca man Frank de Boer, who led Ajax to the Dutch title last season to guarantee a place in next year’s Champions League.”
Bojan made his first-team debut for Barca under then current manager, another Dutchman, Frank Rijkaard, in 2007 and scored 26 league goals in four seasons before heading to Italy.
