Hope For Barcelona And Manchester City As Frenkie De Jong Denies PSG Deal

Frenkie De Jong is one of the hottest young talents in Europe

Ajax star Frenkie De Jong seemingly has the pick of Europe's top clubs and he's been linked with most of them in recent months.

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

Reports this morning suggested midfielder De Jong was on his way to PSG for a fee of around €75million but the player has now denied a deal has been done. Speaking to De Telegraaf newspaper, he said there was no such agreement in place which may well be a diplomatic response given the timing of the news. 

"There is no deal, nothing has been decided yet," he said. "I would not be able to make a decision now. In the winter I will not leave anyway." 

The same newspaper had reported that a deal was all but done with PSG which was a something of a shock given his technical ability would make him a more natural fit for Pep Guardiola at City or Barca. 

The Paris club were happy to pay the price quoted and officials from both parties allegedly met earlier this week to finalise a package. Current PSG star Kylian Mbappe had recommended the player and the idea of living in Paris was - unbelievably - more attractive to De Jong than the prospect of living in Manchester.

De Jong seems destined to become Ajax's most expensive sale ever - beating the £35m that Tottenham had to pay for Davinson Sanchez last year.
