Paris Saint-Germain have finally completed the signing of Liverpool’s Gini Wijnaldum.
The 30-year-old Dutchman bids farewell to the Reds after five years, 237 appearances and four honours having made the move to Anfield in 2016 from Newcastle in a £25 million deal.
Wijnaldum attracted interest from the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona, among others, but has settled on a future with the Ligue 1 side.
A move to Camp Nou had looked certain to link up with his former international manager Ronald Koeman, but he is now to work alongside ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, signing until 2024.
It will see him work alongside the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Marquinhos.
Here is what Wijnaldum had to say on his move: “Signing for Paris Saint-Germain is a new challenge for me.
“I’m joining one of the best squads in Europe and I want to bring all my desire and commitment to this ambitious project.
