PSG: Wijnaldum has arrived in Rome

This is a first major start settled for PSG and its management. After reaching an agreement on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday for his loan, Georginio Wijnaldum arrived this Thursday in Rome, where he will be able to engage with Roma. He was greeted at Rome airport by many fans of La Louve.

The two clubs had already agreed on the principle of a loan (with an option to buy) since the first days of negotiations, but discussions dragged on over disagreements over the player’s salary. The player himself insisted on this point: it should, according to our information, remain identical to what he received at Paris Saint-Germain, with the exception of the bonuses included in his contract which should be reviewed. on the decline. Paris should pay part of this salary and Rome could, for its part, include other bonuses in the international Oranje contract.

He wanted to leave to compete in the World Cup

Since the departure of his teammates for the club’s summer tour in Japan in mid-July, the Dutchman (31) was part of the “second group” of training for the Parisian professional workforce, including several players from the first team. clearly for sale (Herrera, Rafinha, Draxler, Kurzawa…) and several young professionals. He had made a departure an absolute priority, with the undisguised objective – and shared by other players – of putting himself in the best conditions to compete in the World Cup this winter.

Georginio Wijnaldum played 38 games with PSG last season (1993 minutes of play), for 3 goals and 3 assists. Recruited free last season after the expiry of his contract with Liverpool, he never really managed to impose himself in a PSG where he struggled to find his place and express his talent, despite some flashes like his doubled in the Champions League against RB Leipzig. He will therefore very quickly become the fifth summer signing for Roma after Zeki Celik (Lille), Nemanja Matić (Manchester United), Mile Svilar (Benfica) and Paulo Dybala (Juventus). By domino effect, this arrival will accelerate the departure of the French international from AS Roma, Jordan Veretout, to Marseille.
