This past week, a recent report from transfer window specialist Gianluca Di Marzio shared that PSG has offered midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, with AS Roma in the mix also to land the 31-year-old.
Despite both Serie A clubs linked to the Netherlands international, a major hurdle will prevent a deal from occurring. According to Tuttosport (via Paris Fans), Wijnaldum’s salary is too rich for both clubs to take on if the midfielder wants a change of scenery.
Wijnaldum currently earns a salary of €9.7 million per year, which would be a problem for Milan and Roma. However, PSG would be ready to pay half of this salary if the negotiations led to a loan deal.
However, if the former Liverpool midfielder wants to close out his stint with the French giants and move elsewhere, he might have to consider taking a pay cut to finalize a move.
After being left out of the Netherlands national team recently, Wijnaldum could ponder making less money to gain more minutes and secure a spot on the squad for the World Cup in Qatar later this year.
