Highly rated midfielder De Jong has been heavily linked with LaLiga champions Barca and Premier League holders City following his impressive performances for Dutch giants Ajax.

De Telegraaf also says PSG's move came about after a direct request from Kylian Mbappe.

However, speaking to The Guardian, De Jong said he is keeping all options open, "It's hard to say what will happen". "I want to finish this season well with Ajax". 'Then we will see. "But I am not sure".

The youngster is well aware of all the stories linking him to big moves overseas.

Now he's simply tuning out the noise.

Barça's handicap, as is also the case with De Jong's teammate Matthjis De Ligt, is financial, as it's hard to match what their competitors will pay.

"I hear the stories but I just want to finish this season well".

Given De Jong's budding reputation as a skilled passer, it is no surprise he enjoys how Pep Guardiola's sides play, whether they are his old Barcelona champions or his current Manchester City squad.

While he may not pay attention to the speculation, De Jong does have an admiration toward a particular style of play.

"I love this style", he added.

The most expensive Dutch player ever will remain Virgil van Dijk after his £75m move to Liverpool 12 months ago but De Jong's prospective deal would make him the most expensive Eredivisie player of all time. "City and Barcelona are great examples".
