It took Barcelona a few months to bring in Georgini Wijnaldum (30 years old), and when she finally agreed to everything, the great Liverpool midfielder and Dutch captain was stolen by Paris Saint-Germain.
Barcelona’s Dutch team is particularly keen to bring in Wijnaldum: the coaches Ronald Koeman and Frankie De Jong, who led the Gini team in the Dutch national team, also seduce him by assuring him of Memphis Depay He and Wijnaldum have a good cooperation in the orange team.
Wijnaldum is very interesting for Barcelona, because after his contract with Liverpool expires, he is a free agent and will not receive any compensation. In the unprecedented financial crisis, Barcelona could not provide him with more than 4 million euros in bonuses every season, but they also increased the high bonuses related to performance and trophies won.
The Dutch agreed and underwent a medical examination, and then he was supposed to sign for Barcelona, but during the examination, Mauricio Pochettino called him. Fabrizio Romano revealed that his salary on behalf of Paris Saint-Germain is twice that of Barcelona, Marca reports. Wijnaldum then informed Barcelona that he would withdraw from the deal and go to Paris Saint-Germain.
Wijnaldum came to Liverpool from Newcastle five years ago for 27 million euros. He played 237 games for Liverpool, scoring 22 goals and scoring 16 goals. In the Netherlands, led by the European Cup, he played 74 games and scored 22 goals.
