Paris Saint-Germain win race for Frenkie de Jong?

Ajax's Frenkie De Jong agrees to join Paris Saint-Germain over Manchester City

Ajax's Frenkie De Jong agrees to join Paris Saint-Germain over Manchester City

Reports in the Netherlands had earlier suggested De Jong had agreed a £70m move to PSG, but it appears that is not the case.

However, according to De Telegraaf, PSG have agreed to meet that price, and the Netherlands global will move to the French capital in next summer's transfer window.

Ajax technical director Marc Overmars is said to have quoted the £67m fee, which should pose no problem to cash-rich PSG.

Both PSG and Manchester City are said to be able to offer De Jong a higher wage than Barcelona, but the Catalan side feel they have what it takes to persuade De Jong to choose Barcelona ahead of their competition. "I try to see how they move".

"I don't pay attention to it", the midfielder said. He also cites Chelsea midfielder Jorginho as one of his inspirations. There are so many to learn from.

"City and Barcelona are great examples".

De Jong has been one of three midfield targets since the end of the summer along with Paul Pogba and Adrien Rabiot.

Despite his new starring role on the global scene and interest from Europe's elite clubs, De Jong is still focusing on the job at hand with his current club.

"Frenkie is guaranteed to stay with Ajax until the summer and I cannot say anything about it". 'Then we will see. "In the winter I will not leave anyway". But I am not sure, ' he told the paper.

Expounding on the transfer speculation, in particular the stories surrounding a big-money bid from Ligue 1 champions PSG, he added: "It's an issue since the start of the season".

De Jong has made 22 appearances for Ajax this season, including four outings in the Champions League.
