Gini Wijnaldum explains why he chose PSG over Barcelona

Gini Wijnaldum was expected to join Barcelona but instead joined PSG in the final hour.

The Dutch midfielder decided to leave Anfield after winning the Champions League and Premier League with Liverpool during his five-year spell.

He was widely expected to join Barcelona to play under his compatriot Ronald Koeman but the Catalan giants took too long over negotiations.

The 30-year old midfielder finally joined PSG for free on a three-year deal last week.

“I made another choice. It was very difficult. I was negotiating with Barcelona for four weeks, and we never reached a final decision,” Wijnaldum explained.

“Paris Saint-Germain were a bit better in making a decision. They were quicker. And the project that they have at PSG it really appealed to me.

“It was a difficult choice I have to be honest. I thought I would be moving to Barcelona because they were the only team who were really interested in me, but we did not reach an agreement together.

“PSG were much clearer in making that decision.”
