After leaving Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain signed midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum on a free transfer. PSG announced on Thursday that the 30-year-old Dutch international has signed a three-year contract until 2024.
Over the course of five seasons, he appeared in 237 games for Liverpool, helping the English club win the Champions League and the Premier League. His contract was not renewed, and he was anticipated to join Barcelona before the start of the season. PSG, on the other hand, is said to have offered a higher pay.
Wijnaldum is a talented midfielder who has also played as an emergency center half for Liverpool this season due to injuries. Wijnaldum remarked after completing his deal, “I’m joining one of the finest groups in Europe.” “Paris Saint-Germain has proven how excellent they are in previous years, and I am confident that we can go even far and higher together, with our supporters.”
PSG is aiming to bolster its team after failing to win the French Championship after Lille pulled off one of the biggest shock in recent European soccer history. PSG was also eliminated by Manchester City in the Champions League semifinals.
Neymar was recently convinced to sign a new long-term contract with the club, but prolific attacker Kylian Mbappe is hesitant to sign a new contract, as his current agreement expires at the conclusion of next season. The World Cup-winning captain of France has challenged the club to show him an ambitious plan if he is to stay. In recent days, PSG has been connected with goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who is widely regarded as the greatest in the world. He decided to leave AC Milan and has been linked with a move to Juventus.
