Manchester United Boss Turned Down Chance to Sign PSG Flop

Paris Saint-Germain loanee Georginio Wijnaldum might be fortunate to have found a temporary club in A.S. Roma, considering Manchester United was one of the clubs with no interest in the 31-year-old coming off a disappointing 2021-22 season. 

Sky Sports reports that Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag turned down the chance to sign Wijnaldum. The English media outlet adds that the Netherlands international was keen on a move to Old Trafford. 

Wijnaldum’s success and knowing the Premier League might have played a vital part in the veteran midfielder wanting to return to England. However, Ten Hag has other plans as The Red Devils’ new gaffer targets former PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

Nonetheless, the former Liverpool man is now in the Italian capital with José Mourinho, who coached against the midfielder when the two were in the Premier League. A move to a league Wijnaldum is familiar with didn’t occur, but he’s now at a club with a manager who knows his qualities.
