Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has refused to be drawn on the future of midfielder Frenkie de Jong after the 21-year-old was linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

"It is nearly certain that De Jong, 21, will exchange Ajax for Paris Saint-Germain", popular tabloid De Telegraaf said.

However, according to Dutch newspaper De Telegraph, the 21-year-old is likely to join PSG after the Ligue 1 club outbid City for his services.

Barca appear to have quite a strict wage hierarchy and don't want to break that - something that they worry PSG, and potentially Manchester City, aren't so fussed about.

"The dark blue jersey of France's upcoming champions PSG, not the light blue one of Manchester City, will nearly certainly become De Jong's next summer", the paper said. Ajax director Marc Overmars has admitted to holding talks with the French giants and they are willing to pay the asking price recently set by the former Arsenal winger.

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

"I think it's fantastic for the player himself, but also for Ajax". But I am not sure, ' he told the paper.

However, while the interest has continued to grow, De Jong is uncertain where he will be playing next season, as he has now claimed his primary focus is just on finishing the campaign well.

De Jong is well aware of the intense speculation surrounding his future but has insisted he's not letting it sidetrack him in any way.
