Ajax Star De Jong To Sign £75m Deal

The Sun claims that the 21-year-old midfielder will turn down the chance to sign for Pep Guardiola's side in favour of a £67 million move to the French champions.

"The only thing I can and will say is that there is still no agreement", De Jong told De Telegraaf. Manchester City and Juventus have been reportedly monitoring him as well.

"You have to tackle as well", De Jong added.

If PSG are willing to pay the asking price, it would be a hard offer to reject for Ajax, who recently posted a picture of De Jong and De Ligt (whose price they have set at 65 million euros) on their twitter page with the message: "They're not going to Spain".

Marc Overmars, current Ajax sports director, has recognised the contact but also wanted to point out the existence of interest from other teams.

"I want to finish this season well with Ajax", he said.

"It would be great for Ajax, a huge compliment", the 48-year-old stated.

"I don't know yet what I will do at the end of the season, whether I will stay for an extra year or if I will join another club - and if so, which club that will be".

De Jong took possession in the middle of the field and charged forward before slotting firing in from the edge of the box, taking his tally to two goals and one assist in 13 Eredivisie appearances.

"I can't be anxious about saying "I'm going here or there". When you watch that, you get the feeling you want to go out on the pitch and play football with your friends and just enjoy yourself. The Paris club will be conscious of the fact they could lose Rabiot to Barcelona, and would see De Jong as a fitting replacement.
