  • Man City boss Guardiola wanted Ajax star De Jong on board

De Ligt is not the only huge prospect at Ajax - defensive midfielder Frenkie De Jong has been courted by numerous biggest clubs in Europe.

The 21-year-old has been making waves in the Eredivisie and looked destined to join either of the two European superpowers.

Now it appears he is going to miss out on another target - De Telegraaf are reporting that De Jong has made a decision to sign for PSG, in a deal worth €75 million. "I try to see how they move", he said.

"I don't pay attention to it", the midfielder said.

Given De Jong's budding reputation as a skilled passer, it is no surprise he enjoys how Pep Guardiola's sides play, whether they are his old Barcelona champions or his current Manchester City squad.

De Jong then gave his verdict on the criticism Jorginho has faced this season for not offering enough protection to the Chelsea defence.

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has refused to rule out the Bundesliga giants making a move for Ajax prodigy Frenkie de Jong. "City and Barcelona are great examples".

"Frenkie is guaranteed to stay with Ajax until the summer and I cannot say anything about it". There are so many to learn from.

"We'll see if he goes to Paris".

'Maybe I'll stay for another year, maybe I'll leave.

The news of PSG's interest is of no major concern to Ten Hag, who insists his squad - including De Jong - are exclusively focused on staying in touch with Eredivisie leaders PSV by beating PEC Zwolle on Saturday.

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".
