Neither the Catalans nor the other main candidates in the race, Manchester City, are willing to match the French champions' offer and enter an auction.Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars knows how valuable a player de Jong is but also realises that the final decision lies with the player himself and that could be Barcelona's secret weapon. They have made no secret of their desire to sign the Dutch international and have spoken to him and his agent on a number of occasions.Their challenge is now to present an attractive sporting prospect that satisfies de Jong, enough for him to reject PSG's lucrative offer, as well as being able to reach agreement with Ajax on a transfer fee. sbobet168 The problem for the Blaugrana is that City are doing exactly the same and have their own secret weapon in the persuasive Pep Guardiola. The Camp Nou club had set out 50 million euros for the deal, however, that will clearly be an insufficient fee for the Dutch club to part with their prized asset's services. There is no chance the 21-year-old will leave for less than 60 million and the likelihood is that it would take at least 70 million now that Ajax know how much PSG are willing to invest.The balance between fixed payments and variables will therefore be critical. The competition for de Jong will be fierce given that the Amsterdam club agreed to let the player decide on which club to join this season.They want to reach a conclusion as soon as possible, ideally before Christmas and in January at the latest. Barcelona's advantage is that they have Adrien Rabiot lined up as a backup. The Frenchman will not renew his contract with PSG and would represent a cheaper option to de Jong, which would then allow Los Cules to focus on a more urgent priority: signing his Dutch compatriot and teammate Matthijs de Ligt. sbobet168
