Ex-Mag Gini Wijnaldum set for shock move after club hijacks Barcelona’s bid with huge offer

Former Mag Georginio Wijnaldum has had some career since he left Newcastle United for Liverpool almost five years ago.

He’s won a UEFA Champions League and Premier League title since, establishing himself as one of the top midfielder’s in the division, however it’s been well documented that he’ll leave Anfield this summer and seal a move to Barcelona.

This proposed ‘free transfer’ was imminent according to many of the main media outlets, however it’s now emerged that he will sign for PSG instead in a surprise U-turn that shows just how much money talks in modern day football.

Despite having medicals in place at the Nou Camp, it’s said PSG have come forward with a late offer that’s DOUBLED the salary he was due to receive at Barcelona – a move that appears to have tempted the former NUFC star into signing for the French giants instead.

As a result, it’s said Barcelona won’t be going back in with a bigger offer and he will sign a lucrative contract to keep him in Paris until 2024 instead.

Let’s hope he fairs better at The Parc des Princes than fellow former Mags Hatem Ben Arfa and Yohan Cabaye did – two players who ironically saw their careers go downhill following big moves to PSG.
