After that, De Jong says he could depart the club or remain for another season. Barcelona would be looking for the next Busquets.

The 21-year-old has been making waves in the Eredivisie and looked destined to join either of the two European superpowers.

"Beyond denying these totally erroneous and ridiculous stories, and with the chance of recreating a climate of great tensions between the club and this medium, PSG asks, once again, about the intellectual honesty of L 'Equipe and the hidden motives of its editorial line on PSG", the statement read.

De Jong himself has poured scorn on the rumours claiming that a big-money move to PSG was complete, insisting that no deal is yet in place.

Ajax technical director Marc Overmars is said to have quoted the £67m fee, which should pose no problem to cash-rich PSG.

Mbappe's France played Netherlands twice in the UEFA Nations League and the 19-year-old striker was said to be so impressed with De Jong that he "called on the club leadership" to sign the midfielder.

"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".

In an interview with The Guardian on Thursday, De Jong admitted he is uncertain over where his future lies.

On praise for him from PSG forward Kylian Mbappe, he said: "It makes me happy to hear what Mbappe said about me". Honestly, he is very welcome in Paris!

"But that's been the case for a long time now".
