Frenkie de Jong has been talking about his future but has given little away as to where his next destination may be.

Recent reports have claimed the midfielder is headed to Paris Saint-Germain, and he was asked about a recent report that had linked him with the French champions.

“I do not have to talk about that much, I thought then, and I played an away match against PEC Zwolle shortly afterwards, and then I noticed that extra eyes were being directed at me.

“I’m not going to make a hasty decision, but I’d like to be clear about it myself pretty quickly. I do not know if I’ll make it known to the public.”

Barcelona have long been rumoured to be interested in De Jong, and he also spoke about the Catalan giants in a pretty cryptic response.

“When I was in Barcelona, people thought I would join them, but that’s not the case,” he added.

“Everyone knows that I think Barcelona is a beautiful club, but I don’t know if I should see my career as a city trip.”

The De Jong transfer saga hasrumbled along for some time now, the latest reports have suggest he prefers PSG as he’s likely to enjoy more playing time at the Ligue 1 side.
