Now it appears he is going to miss out on another target - De Telegraaf are reporting that De Jong has chose to sign for PSG, in a deal worth €75 million.
The 21-year-old is now one of the most highly rated young players in world football and he, along with teammate Matthijs De Ligt, has been linked heavily with possible moves to Barcelona and Manchester City. Manchester City and Juventus have been reportedly monitoring him as well.
British papers have linked De Jong with Manchester City, who are also said to be prepared to pay the asking price, and with Barcelona.
The club's business director Marc Overmars has confirmed that the two sides are in talks, but said nothing has yet been sealed and other clubs are also after the youngster. There are so many I look at, especially the midfielders.
It's no secret that Barcelona have been chasing Frenkie de Jong for some time as the Dutchman has been openly talked about at the club.

"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".
Laughing off the daily rumours, De Jong adds: "I don't pay attention to it".
"The only thing I can and will say is that there is still no agreement", said De Jong, a Barcelona target.
"You have to do your defensive work but I like to see players who understand the game, players with a lot of vision". I hear the stories but I just want to finish this season well'.
And de Jong has admitted he himself is an admirer of Guardiola's passing-based style of football.
