From peace to anger and annoyance... When it seemed that Joan Laporta was going to entertain Ronald Koeman with one of his main requests to reinforce Barcelona, after the signings of Sergio Agüero, Eric García and Emerson Royal, in the half appeared Paris Saint-Germain of Mauricio Pochettino and ended up robbing the player, who this Thursday was announced as a reinforcement of the team.
The mention goes to Giorgionio Wijnaldum, the Dutch midfielder who comes from playing in Liverpool in England and is considered one of the best midfielders in his country and in all of Europe. Wijnaldum, to the surprise of many, didn't renew his contract with the Reds after being a very important player for Jürgen Klopp.
Koeman, who already directed him in the Netherlands national team, wanted him yes or yes at Barsa and had even spoken directly with him to seduce him.
Wijnaldum had accepted the offer of the culé club and had everything agreed to join the team, but last Friday the Parisian team got in the way and offered him a salary that practically doubled what he was going to earn in Barcelona, which was decisive for the final choice of the steering wheel.
“Paris Saint-Germain are pleased to announce the arrival of Georginio Wijnaldum to their squad. The Dutch midfielder has signed a contract with the club until June 30, 2024″, expressed PSG announcing the arrival of the footballer.
“Joining Paris Saint-Germain is a new challenge for me. I'm joining one of the best training courses in Europe and I really want to be able to contribute my desire and my determination to this ambitious project. Paris Saint-Germain has shown its status in recent years and I am sure that together, for our fans, we can go further and further", said the midfielder in a statement with the official website of the French club.
