Georginio Wijnaldum leaves the ranks of Liverpool after five years, with whom he was the champion of England and Europe. He decided to look for happiness elsewhere and cash in good games from Anfield, and he was expected to continue his career in Barcelona.
Weeks ago, it was claimed in the Spanish media that the Dutchman had an agreement with Blaugrana, but the rich Paris Saint-Germain intervened in the story and put an exceptional financial offer in front of the midfielder's agents.
According to Catalan Sport, at this moment Wijnaldum is closer to moving to the Princes' Park than to the Camp Nou. The reason is a more generous offer from the capital of France, and the impression is that the Dutchman will change direction at the last moment, thus leaving Ronald Koeman without the desired signing.
Although it was suspected that he could fit into Barca's style of play, Koeman insisted on hiring his compatriot, who, after entering the last few months of his contract, became interesting to numerous clubs across Europe.
Numerous clubs appeared, and Bayern Munich appeared as the most serious competition for Barca. However, all interested parties PSG is going to overshadow Wijnaldum was interested in moving to Camp Nou, he expressed a desire to wear the Barcelona jersey and renew his cooperation with Koeman, with whom he created excellent relations in the Dutch national team.
Aguero and Garcia
The Catalans prepared a contract for him with strong bonuses and he was already seen as a new Blaugrana player, although they also pointed out from the ranks of the Spanish giant that the competition for Wijnaldum's signature is huge.
It is now increasingly clear what the real interest in the 30-year-old midfielder is. However, Wijnaldum is focused on performances in the national team, he wants to leave a good impression at the European Championship and help the Netherlands to achieve the best possible result.
As he stated, he put his destiny in the hands of agents, who apparently were seriously warmed up for the rich offer from the Princes' Park. Barcelona has already hired the duo from Manchester City, Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia have arrived as free players, and it is expected that these days the cooperation with the club will be initialed by Memphis Depay.
Wijnaldum was seen as part of a quartet that was supposed to seriously strengthen Ronald Koeman's company without compensation. Still, we will wait a little longer because we know that strange things are happening in the world of football today
