Gini changed his mind yesterday – he’s not joining Barça and he’s now a new PSG player. https://t.co/HOs6YcGsPA
Wijnaldum was very close to a transfer to Barcelona, but the player reportedly changed his mind after PSG offered a considerably higher wage. The Catalan club could not meet his demands, hence fell out of the race to sign the midfielder.
Despite the fact that Ronald Koeman highly demanded Wijnaldum, the Dutch midfielder did not have the best display last season, playing 51 games and scoring just 3 goals.
While Barcelona is packed with midfielders, the player could be of high use at PSG, who are under quite a rebuild under Mauricio Pochettino and short on a player of Wijnaldum’s profile.
