Footballer De Jong to Manchester City?

Hamburg football club has agreed to sell Dutch football international Nigel de Jong to Manchester City but the final decision on the transfer depends on the midfielder himself, reports Britain’s Guardian newspaper.

No financial details have been revealed, but the German media are speculating that the British club may be willing to pay as much as €20m for the 24-year-old former player, the paper says.
De Jong’s former club Ajax will get a cut of the transfer fee which could be up to €800,000, the Telegraaf says.
