PSG set to rival Barcelona for Dutch free agent this summer

PSG set to rival Barcelona for Dutch free agent

Wijnaldum seemingly Barca bound

Ahead of this evening, it appeared that Georgino Wijnaldum was leaving Liverpool this summer and signing for Barcelona on a free transfer. Indeed, the generally reliable Fabrizio Romano tweeted that only the medical stood between the 30-year-old midfielder and the Nou Camp.

PSG to challenge for his signature

However, a report from Spanish outlet El Chiringuito suggests that PSG are set to rival Barca’s interest in the soon-to-be free agent. According to journalist Jose Alvarez Haya, PSG are set to offer the Dutchman double that of Barcelona, a sum totally around 8 million euros, but would also offer him a three-year deal, which would see him net 24 million euros in Paris.

Perhaps crucially for Barcelona fans, the message ends with a tone of doubt, claiming that the Spanish side remain Wijnaldum’s first choice of club, a fact only furthered by the confirmation of Ronald Koeman’s leadership next season.

All will be revealed, as per Haya, next week. Wijnaldum will make a final decision and his move away from Anfield will be confirmed, in all likelihood ahead of the Netherlands’ first group game of Euro 2020, where they take on Ukraine.

With fellow dutchman Koeman at the helm, and Memphis Depay rumoured to be on his way to join up with the side as yet another free agent, it is easy to see why Barcelona is such an attractive destination for the ex-Liverpool midfielder.

Wijnaldum would join fellow free agents Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia in swapping England for Catalonia, while Barcelona have also signed Emerson Royal in the past few days. Despite their overwhelming debt, it appears as though their rebuilding efforts could well bear fruit.
