Manchester City have been the standout performers in the Premier League this season as they continue to hunt down a second consecutive title.
The Citizens may look to strengthen during the January transfer window with their Premier League rivals inevitably making moves. But, Man City suffered a huge setback on the transfer front recently, as according to De Telegraaf, Frenkie de Jong prefers a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Manchester City target Frenkie de Jong is set to snub Pep Guardiola by making a £67 million move to Paris Saint-Germain next summer.
Indeed, the 21-year-old has been on Man City’s radar for an absolute age, having established himself as one of the rising stars in world football.
But, it’s thought that the Dutch international prefers a move to join Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in France.
Worryingly, Ajax director of football Marc Overmars has slapped a £67 million price tag on De Jong’s head and the former Arsenal winger confirmed a PSG delegation had met with the Dutch club.
Frenkie de Jong has the potential to become one of the best midfielders in the whole of world football, so it comes as a huge blow that Paris Saint-Germain look set to secure his services next summer.
So, Pep Guardiola will need to turn his attention elsewhere in the January transfer window and beyond, with Ruben Neves and Tanguy Ndombele being other targets.
