Manchester City may miss out on Ajax's Frenkie de Jong with reports that he has chosen to join Paris Saint-Germain next summer.

At his press conference ahead of Ajax's clash with PEC Zwolle, Erik ten Hag was asked about De Jong and joked, "Yes, I spoke to him".

Ajax reportedly placed a £75m value on the in-demand midfielder in a bid to warn off suitors.

The 21-year-old is now one of the most highly rated young players in world football and he, along with teammate Matthijs De Ligt, has been linked heavily with possible moves to Barcelona and Manchester City.

"The only thing I can and will say is that there is still no agreement", said De Jong, a Barcelona target.

The 21-year-old midfielder has become one of Europe's most sought after products after starring for the Eredivisie side over the past year.

Fields referred to Heyer's mother in a recorded jailhouse phone call as a "communist" and "one of those anti-white supremacists". The jury is scheduled to convene Monday to determine Fields's sentence which carries a recommended sentence of 20 years to life.


"I think it's fantastic for the player himself, but also for Ajax".

De Jong has been capped five times by the Netherlands and played a key role in their Nations League campaign where they next face England in June 2019.

"I don't pay attention to it", De Jong said. I hear the stories but I just want to finish this season well'.
