Gini Wijnaldum has signed the contract offered to him by PSG. That is according to renowned transfer insider Fabrizio Romano, who broke the news. The player is set for medicals today and will be unveiled as a Parisian soon.
As reported by Romano, the player has signed a three-year deal with the French club. And he will be offered double the salary that Barcelona were offering him. As a free agent, he only had a verbal agreement with the Blaugrana and hadn’t signed anything, since he was keeping his options open. According to Mike Verweij, the Dutch international is set to earn more than €10m per year with his new club.

The player refused to accept a new deal with Liverpool throughout the 20/21 season. Although the club tried to keep him numerous times, they could not match his salary demands. He was one of the first options for Jurgen Klopp in midfield, providing an immense work rate. As part of the Merseyside club, he won the Champions League, Premier League, Club World Cup and Super Cup.
Barcelona had been pursuing him since the summer of 2020, but the player has now made his final decision and has chosen the Parc de Princes over Camp Nou.
