Manchester City chase £50m Ajax star Frenkie de Jong
MANCHESTER CITY are lining-up a £50m move for Ajax’s Frenkie de Jong – despite potentially facing an examination concerning their spending.
The Dutch international is being courted by a number of Europe’s enormous firearms, including Man United.
But The Mail claim the Premier League champions are set to beat their local rivals, who they crushed 3-1 yesterday, to the mark of the 21-year-old.
De Jong is believed to be keen to work with Guardiola and would favour a move to join the Spaniard as opposed to crosswise over town at Old Trafford.
Both sides are also interested in the star’s Ajax colleague Matthijs De Ligt, 21.
However the central defender is veering towards joining La Liga monsters Barcelona.
City appear ready to splash the cash again on strengthening their squad over the coming a very long time in spite of the likelihood of a few examinations.
The football authorities and potentially HM Revenue and Customs could look in to their accounts.
The Mail say HMRC will be “relentless in pursuing” anyone club or football assume that has abstained from making good on regulatory expense.
Uefa’s Club Financial Control Body look set to launch an investigation following last week’s ago’s disclosures a few business bargains by City were supported by their proprietor Sheik Mansour, which would be a break of Financial Fair Play rules.
