Ajax tells Man City De Jong's asking price

Man City told how much they must pay to beat Barca to Frenkie De Jong

November 21, 2018 By Ali M.
The Citizens are keen on the Dutch starlet but will face stiff competition from the Blaugrana.

One of the hottest prospects in world football right now is Frenkie De Jong. The Dutch midfielder has earned several admirers across Europe and is now tipped to leave Ajax amid interest from the continent's elite.

Man City is one team rumored to be in hot pursuit of the 21-year-old. Guardiola is reportedly keen on bolstering his midfield, especially given Fernandinho's age. Having missed out on Jorginho, the Citizens boss does not wish to lose this opportunity.

De Jong's growing importance to the Netherlands national team is a testament to his quality. He played the whole 90 minutes in the 2-2 comeback draw against Germany that earned his nation a spot in the UEFA Nations League final four.

Unfortunately, this means competition for his services will be high. As per the Daily Mail, it's for this reason that his Eredivisie employers believe they are well within their right to demand $96M for the midfielder, an amount that will smash the record fee the Premier League champion paid for Riyad Mahrez over the summer.

Another huge concern for the English giant is the interest from Barcelona. Several reports have stated that the Dutch midfielder is priority number one for the Blaugrana, with the Spanish giant ready to outbid their rivals to land this star of the future.

Real Madrid is also keen on the starlet as a possible replacement for 33-year-old Luka Modric. However, it is believed that the player favors a move to Camp Nou.
