Ajax's De Jong: Maybe I'll stay for another year, maybe I'll leave

De Jong has scored twice in 22 games for Ajax this season while also playing in all 10 of their Champions League matches.

The 21-year-old midfielder has become one of Europe's most sought after products after starring for the Eredivisie side over the past year.

Paris Saint-Germain could pip Manchester City to the signing of Ajax and Netherlands midfield star Frenkie de Jong in a record 75 million euro deal, a Dutch newspaper report said Friday (Dec 7).

With a contract until 2022, De Jong says it's "difficult" to predict his long-term future.

Despite his new starring role on the worldwide scene and interest from Europe's elite clubs, De Jong is still focusing on the job at hand with his current club.

After that, De Jong says he could depart the club or remain for another season.

'I want to finish this season well with Ajax, ' he added. Then we will see. Matthijs de Ligt has been on the radar of top Premier League sides including Liverpool, and the 19 year old could reject the chance to stay in the Netherlands beyond the summer. "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.

City had appeared to be the frontrunners for De Jong, with manager Pep Guardiola thought to have likened him to a young Andres Iniesta.

Reports this morning suggested midfielder De Jong was on his way to PSG for a fee of around €75million but the player has now denied a deal has been done.

"When you watch that, you get the feeling you want to go out on the pitch and play football with your friends and just enjoy yourself".

'City and Barcelona are great examples'.
