But Wijnaldum has admitted that he initially had no desire to leave Liverpool in the summer season, however the Reds’ lack of interest in agreeing terms over a brand-new agreement required him to look somewhere else.
” You follow your feeling,” Winaldum discussed to L’Equipe.” Several months ago, I had expressed the desire to remain in Liverpool but, without going into details, Liverpool did not provide me the feeling of wishing to keep me.
” In these cases, we need to progress.”
Wijnaldum delighted in five successful years on Merseyside, playing a key function in the club’s Champions League success in 2019, and the subsequent Premier League title glory of 2020.
He was a popular member of the team, although he periodically came in for severe criticism from advocates- something which the Dutchman has actually resolved considering that signing for PSG. The former Newcastle United star countered at the abuse he got online, stating that he didn’t feel ‘ liked and valued’ after whatever he had actually offered to Liverpool.
Wijnaldum’s failed talks over an agreement extension led him to discovering a new club in the summertime, and he seemed set to join Barcelona on a complimentary transfer. PSG swooped in at the last 2nd though, and they offered him more than double his proposed wage at Camp Nou.
