Four days ago, De Telegraaf reported that it’s almost certain Frenkie de Jong will leave Ajax for Paris Saint-Germain for €75m next summer.
The Dutch newspaper’s report was turned down by the 21-year-old himself and also his agent, giving a lifeline to Manchester City and Barcelona, who are also interested in the midfielder.
Journalist Oriol Domènech appeared on Catalunya Radio’s show El Club de la Mitjanit on Monday, and provided what he presented as the latest details regarding the Netherlands international.
Mundo Deportivo have got the update in today’s edition of the newspaper.
He claims the pact between the player and PSG exists and he also has a similar pact with the La Liga winners and it’s for the same price, but has so far not made a decision on his future.
Manchester City are the Eredivisie star’s second choice club after Barcelona, while the Paris-based side are third in his list of priorities.
After De Telegraaf’s report, the Catalan club were the first side to contact De Jong’s agent, while the English champions have also made their move.
Domènech mentions Pep Guardiola has already spoken to the Ajax player several times in order to convince him to make a switch to the Etihad.
So far, De Jong’s priority is to play for the Camp Nou outfit, but if that doesn’t work out, he will join City.
