"You have the guys from Barcelona, the guys from Manchester City".

It looked like City had lost out on another primary target and would have to look at alternatives, but a story from France tonight has cast doubt over the De Jong to PSG stories.

The Netherlands global was among the goals for Ajax on Saturday as they beat PEC Zwolle 4-1.

"Frenkie is guaranteed to stay with Ajax until the summer and I cannot say anything about it".

De Jong is interested in lining up alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in preference to moving to Manchester.

Frenkie De Jong has caught the eye of many top clubs with his performances for Ajax Amsterdam and the Netherlands over the past year.

Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly beaten Manchester City for the services of a £75 million-rated player, who was also linked with FC Barcelona. "I do not know yet what I'm going to do, leave or stay another year, in principle everything is still open and nothing has been decided yet". But I am not sure, ' he told the paper.

In an interview with The Guardian on Thursday, De Jong admitted he is uncertain over where his future lies.

Even French sensation Kylian Mbappe was raving about the Dutch wonder-kid after going against him on global duty."He is a player who really impressed me during our two matches with the Netherlands", he told France Football. I said to him as much, because he would be enormous for us.

"Honestly, he is very welcome in Paris!"

It is not the first time Guardiola has been forced to see his City side miss out on a major transfer - with PSG beating him once before to the signing of full-back Dani Alves. "After that, he will make his own choice".
