Liverpool midfielder, Georginio Wijnaldum, has agreed personal terms with French side Paris Saint-Germain according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Wijnaldum has signed a three year deal with the French side until 2024 and according to Le Parisien, he will earn £8.6million after tax, nearly double what Barcelona offered the Dutchman.

The new wage Gini is earning goes a way to explaining why Liverpool didn't extend his contract, it would've complicated Liverpool's wage structure if they accepted that figure.

Wijnaldum was very close to joining his old Holland manager Ronald Koeman at Barcelona. 

Medicals were ready to go ahead and he had a verbal agreement with the Spanish club but Mauricio Pochettino swooped in and stole Gini from Koeman's side.

The ex Spurs manager was very keen on signing Wijnaldum and apparently called him multiple times to convince him to join PSG instead of Barcelona. Pochettino was also interested in Gini when Newcastle got relegated but the 30-year-old ended up joining the Reds instead.  

The Dutchman had a very emotional goodbye on the final day of the season and you could tell how much Liverpool meant to him and how much he is going to miss the club.

Hopefully Wijnaldum will return to Anfield one day, maybe in the Champions League with PSG. He will definitely get a warm welcome from the Anfield faithful if he does. 

Wijnaldum will be a big miss for Liverpool but Klopp wouldn't of let the Dutchman go if we couldn't replace him, it's a sad but after July the 1st, Georginio Wijnaldum will never be a Liverpool player again. Thank you for the happy memories Gini and good luck.
