Figures behind Wijnaldum move from PSG to Roma – report

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is reportedly only a step away from completing a loan move to Roma.

The Giallorossi have been hard at work this summer strengthening the squad available to Jose Mourinho as they look to fight for a spot in the top four, picking up star man Paulo Dybala on a free transfer. Other important additions, like Nemanja Matic and Mile Svilar, have also joined the ranks.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, PSG and Roma are now working hard to complete the Wijnaldum as soon as possible, and things could even be finalised this evening. 

The Giallorossi have agreed to pay €5m of Wijnaldum’s €7.2m salary, and the player has waived around €1m gross in add-ons in order to help facilitate the move. It will be a loan deal with a buy option attached.

Roma are hoping that Wijnaldum will arrive tomorrow as they want to integrate him into the squad in time for the start of the Serie A season. Their season opener is against Salernitana on August 14.

  1. fair play to Roma for spending some money to keep Jose happy but we know it’ll end in tears when he throws a stroppy childlike tantrum and walks off into the sunset in the middle of the season

  2. He really did walk off into the sunset last season 😏. If he didn’t after last season don’t see why he would do it now when they give him what he wanted. You should worry about poli regressing to his normal self lol.

  3. For me this guy is finished but if Roma is paying part of the salary and does not have an obligation to buy him, it is a decent bet

  4. I think Jose himself wants to stay at roma for long years he won’t be here for a short while they are building a good competitive team who will be fighting for major trophies I really hope they do really well
    However I’m very disappointed with fiorentina and napoli not a singer solid top performing player has been signed

  5. At first I was disappointed in Napoli, they let go of their old guards ruthlessly, however, I think the replacements have enough potential to do well in a couple of seasons time. They are entering rebuilding phase, but not a totally complete overhaul. As much as I dislike ADL, he is somewhat right when underlining that their wages are rather high. He also seems to still have intention to stick around, evident by the way he’s purchasing players.

    I am more disappointed in Lazio if I may add. Sarri deserves a lot of reinforcement, instead, they might be losing SMS too before the windows closed?! Sure, they managed to last for fifth last season, but IMHO, they get left behind this windows and I would be very, very surprised to see Lazio in the top 5 when the season ends.

    Fiorentina transfers were great. Jovic and dodo are top level signings. We got mandra and gollini as well. And bring back zurko and kouame.

    Compared to start of last year:
    Gone: Vlahovic (replaced by three: jovic, cabral and kouame), torreira (replaced by mandra), adriozola (replaced by dodo), callejon ( replaced by ikone).

    Plus the mentioned we added zurko, kouame, gollini.

    We are way more stronger than last year. If we qualify to COF L Group stage 2 more players will come.

    Forza Viola
