Georginio Wijnaldum aiming to take PSG ‘even higher’ after sealing move

Posted on Jun 10, 2021

Georginio Wijnaldum has joined Paris St Germain on a three-year contract following his departure from Liverpool.

The Netherlands midfielder, who turns 31 in November, failed to agree new terms with Liverpool after negotiations hit an impasse over salary and the length of a deal.

Wijnaldum agreed terms to join Barcelona, under his former Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman, but PSG offered twice the salary and hijacked the deal.

“Signing for Paris St-Germain is a new challenge for me,” Wijnaldum told the club’s website. “I’m joining one of the best squads in Europe and I want to bring all my desire and commitment to this ambitious project.

“Paris St-Germain have proved how good they are in recent years and I am convinced that together, with our supporters, we can go even further and higher.”
