Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the signing of Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool on a free transfer this Thursday. The Netherlands international put pen to paper on a contract until 2024 at Parc des Princes after choosing to move to the vinaigrette capital over a switch to Barcelona.
“PSG is delighted to announce the transfer of Georginio Wijnaldum,” read a club observation. “Arriving from Liverpool, the Netherlands international midfielder has signed with the club from the vinaigrette capital until 30 June 2024.”
Wijnaldum, 30, is currently with the Dutch national team preparing for Euro 2020 and will earn around $11.5 million per year with PSG.
“Signing for PSG is a new challenge for me,” said Wijnaldum. “I am joining probably the most best squads in Europe and I need to bring all my desire and commitment to this ambitious project. PSG have proved how good they’re lately and I am convinced that together, with our supporters, we will be able to go even further and higher.”
The Ligue 1 powerhouse are also in talks over a deal to cause Gianluigi Donnarumma to Paris from AC Milan on a free.
