PSG to snatch Ajax star De Jong from Man City

Frenkie de Jong

"It's hard to say what will happen", De Jong said.

The 21-year-old Dutch worldwide has impressed at club and global level this year, alerting the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City to his talents.

Frenkie de Jong remains firmly committed to Ajax for the immediate future, says his agent, as rumours continue to swirl on the Dutchman's future. Ajax are into the Champions League knockout stages, while the Dutch national team are suddenly beginning to look quite good - despite missing Euro 2016 and the World Cup they topped a Nations League group featuring Germany and France. 'Then we will see.

However, according to Paris-based Le Parisien, Ajax's €75m asking price for the 21-year-old is "prohibitive" due to Financial Fair Play concerns, and it's believed now that the story was planted to create an auction between other interested parties.

De Telegraaf newspaper claimed PSG had practically signed the player for 70m, however, although the Ajax player is in the process of arriving at the Parc des Princes, the Parisien's are clear that it won't be for that amount.

Convincing De Jong might take one hell of a speech.

"I don't know yet what I will do at the end of the season, whether I will stay for an extra year or if I will join another club - and if so, which club that will be".

"I can't be busy saying "I'm going there or there", as that would not show, for my part, any respect for Ajax and my teammates".

De Telegraaf also says PSG's move came about after a direct request from Kylian Mbappe.
