Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman has revealed that he has recently spoken with Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola about Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong.

The Ajax pair have been heavily linked with moves to several of Europe’s biggest clubs with Manchester City reportedly in the running for Frenkie de Jong.

Speaking to AD, Koeman revealed that he spoke with Guardiola, who is a big fan of De Jong. He said, “I have already spoken with Guardiola about De Jong and De Ligt a while ago.

“He is totally wild about the type of midfielder that Frenkie is, he wanted to know everything about him.”

Koeman also praised De Jong, “At Oranje, Frenkie really added something, his greatest quality, is that he can postpone a decision on the ball in many situations, and then give a pass where everyone thinks: yes, damn, well-seen, it can be as simple as that. ”
