Even so, this condition did not make PSG give up. The French giants wants hijack Wijnaldum from the hands of Barcelona.
According to ESPN journalist Samuel Marsden, PSG are ready to offer a higher salary than Barcelona. This is expected to make Wijnaldum tempted and change his mind.

Wijnaldum’s transfer saga is unlikely to end anytime soon. The player is now focusing on defending his country towards the 2020 European Cup.
