Courted by Barça, Georginio Wijnaldum could finally sign for PSG. According to information from Sky Sports, the Liverpool midfielder would have received a very good salary proposal from the Ile-de-France club and would have discussed with Mauricio Pochettino.
On the lookout for nice shots during the summer transfer window, Barça has already completed the arrivals of Sergio Agüero and Eric Garcia. The signing of OL captain Memphis Depay could also be announced soon. The case leading to Georginio Wijnaldum, on the other hand, seems to have taken a little lead in the wing in recent days. Blame it on the big competition from PSG.
Free at the end of June, the Dutch midfielder has so far refused to extend with Liverpool and is heading towards a departure. Long target of his former coach Ronald Koeman and Barça, the 30-year-old torchbearer would finally think of joining Ligue 1.

Pochettino would have called it
Despite long discussions with the club blaurgana, the beautiful contractual offer from PSG could tip the scales to its advantage. According to the elements shared by Fabrizio Romano, journalist from Sky Sports Italia, the Ile-de-France club would have offered a juicy contract to the Batavian player, going as far as doubling the salary promised by Barça.
Seduced by the profile of a player he was able to face in the Premier League, Mauricio Pochettino would have even made a phone call to present his project to the Dutch international with 74 caps. If Barça does not match the salary offer of PSG, Wijnaldum would go to Paris according to Romano.
The Catalan press suggests that the club chaired by Joan Laporta would not want to be upbeat. A situation which, in fact, would leave the field open to PSG to complete a first big reinforcement and assert its ambitions during the transfer window.
