Man City target Frenkie de Jong snubs Pep Guardiola and ‘chooses’ £67m summer switch to PSG
The Dutch prodigy, 21, has been attracting interest from all over Europe after stellar displays for Ajax.
But according to De Telegraaf, De Jong prefers a move to join Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at Parc des Princes than Manchester.
Ajax director of football Marc Overmars has slapped a £67m price tag on De Jong's head and the former Arsenal winger confirmed a PSG delegation had met with the Dutch club.
World Cup winner Mbappe remains one of De Jong's biggest admirers and has urged boss Thomas Tuchel to push the board to sign the playmaker.
Virgil van Dijk remains the most costly Dutchman of all time, after making his £75m switch from Southampton to Liverpool 11 months ago.
Davinson Sanchez is the most pricey sale by an Eredivisie club, when Spurs nabbed the defender for £35m in the summer of 2017.
De Jong revealed in an interview with The Guardian recently that he could be leaving the Johann Cruyff Arena.
"It's difficult to say what will happen.
"I want to finish this season well with Ajax. Then we will see.
"Maybe I'll stay for another year, maybe I'll leave. I'm not sure."
De Jong becomes the latest in a long line of top players to ditch Ajax in favour of more lucrative deals elsewhere.
And ever since their Champions League triumph in 1995, the Amsterdam outfit have long been known as Europe's premier selling club.
His team-mate Matthijs de Ligt, 19, has also been tipped for a big-money move abroad, possibly to the Premier League.
Ajax are undefeated in 14 matches in all competitions, and are currently second in the Eredivisie, two points behind leaders PSV Eindhoven, who were the last team to beat them.
