Manchester City, Barcelona and PSG were said to be at the front of the queue for De Jong's signature, with reports in the Netherlands suggesting the Ligue 1 champions had jumped ahead of their rivals.

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 Telegraaf reported on Thursday night that PSG are set to seal a deal for Frenkie de Jong in the summer, paying Ajax €75 million.

"I think it's fantastic for the player himself, but also for Ajax".

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. "In the winter I will not leave anyway". But I am not sure, ' he told the paper.

On praise for him from PSG forward Kylian Mbappe, he said: "It makes me happy to hear what Mbappe said about me".

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 said. "Get the ball back quickly, then play possession with so many combinations", De Jong said.

As we know, Barca don't typically have much trouble when it comes to convincing players to join and it's usually up to other clubs to convince players otherwise.

The 21-year-old Dutch worldwide has impressed at club and global level this year, alerting the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City to his talents. "That's guaranteed and it's all I can say right now".

"Each player must personally make his choice".
