Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde spoke in a press conference ahead of Thursday's Copa del Rey game against Levante. 

One of the issues which came up was Frenkie de Jong, the Barça target who has reportedly agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain instead of the Catalans. 

Valverde says he's not aware where De Jong's going: "I'm incapable of seeing the future and guessing whether De Jong ends up at PSG or any other team. I don't know the future.

"When we see where he goes, we can pass judgement. De Jong's a really good player but right now he plays for Ajax and we don't talk about players that play for other teams."

The Barça boss also claimed he has not spoken with the Ajax midfielder to try to convince him to make the switch to Camp Nou.  

"I've not spoken with him or any other player," he added. "And no one has spoken to him in my name."
