TRANSFER NEWS: Former Liverpool star, Georginio Wijnaldum signs three-year contract to join PSG rather than Barcelona
Former Liverpool star, Georginio Wijnaldum has signed a contract to join Paris Saint-Germain after the club hijacked his proposed move to Barcelona.
Subject to a medical, the 30-year-old midfielder’s free transfer to the French club will officially take effect once his Liverpool deal expires at the end of this month.
Barcelona had thought Wijnaldum was joining them and had a medical planned but the Netherlands international changed his mind after PSG offered twice the wage following a call from manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The midfielder will be with the club for the next three seasons.
Wijnaldum left Liverpool after five years at Anfield. The Dutchman lifted the Premier League and Champions League during his time in Merseyside, playing 237 games for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
