Frenkie de Jong: I don't have a deal with PSG

There are five games to go until the winter break, I only want to think about the game against PEC this weekend and the next Champions League match against Bayern Munich.

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.

De Jong is the latest Ajax youth product to garner attention from across Europe after impressing since making his first-team debut in 2016.

"You have the guys from Barcelona, the guys from Manchester City".

Climate reality check: Global carbon pollution up in 2018
For the USA , it was a combination of a hot summer and cold winter that required more electricity use for heating and cooling. The United States will account for 15 percent of Carbon dioxide pollution in 2018, an increase of about 2.5 percent.

De Telegraaf claimed representatives of PSG and Ajax had met in Amsterdam to discuss De Jong, with a fee of €75million said to be the agreed price.

"The rumours appeared again today and I'm sure it will stay like this for a while, but I think we're handling it well".

De Jong has been compared to Dutch great Johan Cruyff in terms of his talent, even if his specific skillset means he is not the same kind of player.

And de Jong has admitted he himself is an admirer of Guardiola's passing-based style of football.

Even French sensation Kylian Mbappe was raving about the Dutch wonder-kid after going against him on global duty."He is a player who really impressed me during our two matches with the Netherlands", he told France Football. The Paris club will be conscious of the fact they could lose Rabiot to Barcelona, and would see De Jong as a fitting replacement.

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

"I just had a chat with Frankie and he's speaking French already".

"Each player must personally make his choice".
