Announced possible starting after a disappointing first season at Paris Saint-Germain, Georginio Wijnaldum has a first lead. A club, which he knows very well, would like to bring him back this summer to give him the opportunity to revive before the World Cup.
Wijnaldum had a complicated season at PSG
The transfer window of Paris Saint-Germain is launched. The capital club formalized last Thursday the arrival of midfielder Vitinha, its first summer recruit. And other reinforcements are expected in the coming weeks, like Milan Skriniar (Inter Milan), Renato Sanches (Lille) or Gianluca Scamacca (Sassuolo).
But the Parisian management must also reduce the workforce of future coach Christophe Galtier. Thus, several elements are invited to pack their bags during this summer transfer window. This is the case of Ander Herrera, Layvin Kurzawa, Julian Draxler, Leandro Paredes, Thilo Kehrer or Mauro Icardi. Midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum (31) could also leave the capital this summer, a year after his free arrival from Liverpool.
Wijnaldum’s dream PSV
Disappointing for his first season at Paris SG, the Dutchman will not necessarily be retained by the Parisian leaders in the event of a satisfactory offer. And a club is interested in him. According to Eindhovens Dagblad, the player who passed through Newcastle is on the shelves of PSV Eindhoven, a club whose colors he wore between 2011 and 2015. The Batavian is even considered an absolute dream for the vice-champions of the Netherlands, explains the local media.
Problem, the salary of Wijnaldum, estimated at 916,000 euros per month, is a brake for the Dutch formation. But the residents of the Philips Stadion will closely follow the situation of the Batavian and could try to obtain a loan with support for part of the player’s emoluments. The latter, not selected during the last meeting of the Netherlands, needs to revive five months of the next World Cup and could be tempted by a new challenge. Case to follow…
