One of the crazy summer Mercato stories is just around the corner from writing the final chapter, after Dutch former Liverpool player Gigi Wijnaldum decided to change his future destination from Barcelona to Saint Germain, according to press sources.
Two weeks ago, Wijnaldum made a verbal agreement with Barca to include him for free on a contract that extends until 2024 and with an annual salary that was said to be 4 million euros, and it was reported that the agreement would be completed in the next few days, and even Barca planned to conduct a medical examination next week in the Netherlands national team camp and then announce the deal The new one, which was expected to be the fourth, after Argentine Sergio Aguero, Spanish Eric Garcia and Brazilian Emerson.
But Paris Saint-Germain entered the line in the past three days, offering more than 8 million euros in annual salary, more than double the offer of Barca, in addition to a contract that extends until 2024.
While the captain of the Netherlands national team was a step away from Barca, he has become closer to the Parisian team and may announce the deal in the coming hours.
It is noteworthy that the player who transfers for free has the right to change his mind until the last moment before the final contract is officially signed.
