PSG set to rival Barcelona for Georginio Wijnaldum

PSG set to rival Barcelona for Georginio Wijnaldum

Wijnaldum seemingly Barca bound

Ahead of this evening, it appeared that Georginio Wijnaldum was leaving Liverpool this summer and signing for Barcelona on a free transfer. Indeed, the generally reliable Fabrizio Romano tweeted that only the medical stood between the 30-year-old midfielder and the Nou Camp.

PSG to challenge for his signature

However, a report from Spanish outlet El Chiringuito suggests that PSG are set to rival Barca’s interest in the soon-to-be free agent. According to journalist Jose Alvarez Haya, PSG are set to offer the Dutchman double that of Barcelona, a sum totaling around 8 million euros per season.

Perhaps crucially for Barcelona fans, the message ends with a tone of doubt, claiming that the Spanish side remain Wijnaldum’s first choice of club, a fact only furthered by the confirmation of Ronald Koeman’s leadership next season.

All will be revealed, as per Haya, next week. And though not confirmed, you would assume the midfielder would make his decision before the Netherlands get their Euro 2020 campaign underway vs Ukraine on Sunday, June 13th.

With fellow dutchman Koeman at the helm, and Memphis Depay rumoured to be on his way to join up with the side as yet another free agent, it is easy to see why Barcelona is such an attractive destination for the ex-Liverpool midfielder.

Wijnaldum would join fellow free agents Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia in swapping England for Catalonia, while Barcelona have also signed Emerson Royal in the past few days. Despite their overwhelming debt, it appears as though their rebuilding efforts could well bear fruit.
