On December 18th, we covered a report from Mundo Deportivo, who claimed that Manchester City ‘want to sign’ the Ajax star duo of Matthijs De Ligt and Frenkie De Jong.
It was also mentioned the Premier League winners director of football, Txiki Begiristain, met with the Dutch club’s sporting director Marc Overmars in Nyon.
He claims that sources close to the Etihad outfit have made it clear that they are not interested in completing double transfers for the two Netherlands internationals as City are only focused on De Jong.
The English club and Barca’s style of play are similar and now it is for these two clubs to find a financial balance to complete the operation.
Domènech claims the La Liga winners met the 21-year-old’s agent Ali Dursun and his client is the priority target for the former next summer.
Meanwhile, another journalist, Miguel Rico, writing for Mundo mentions in the last page of the newspaper that City have ‘maximum interest’ in signing De Jong from Ajax.
