Georginio Wijnaldum has expressed his commitment to staying at Paris Saint-Germain after the veteran midfielder returns from a loan stint with AS Roma for the 2022-23 season.
The Serie A side decided not to keep the player and now returns to the French capital. Wijnaldum noted that he may not know what the future holds but does want to stay with PSG, where he has one more year left on his current contract.
“Not yet,” Wijnaldum told L’Equipe (h/t Paris Fans). “I have to see with them. There are many things that need to be clarified. We’ll see then. We see in the media that there is going to be a new coach, but it doesn’t seem entirely clear … [but] yes, if they say so, then I [want to] stay.”
Wijnaldum, who joined PSG from Liverpool in the summer of 2021, revealed that he harbors no regrets about his decision to join the French giants.
“No way,” Wijnaldum added. “I make my decisions with the feeling that I have at that moment. I’m always in line with the choices I make so I have no regrets.”
The 32-year-old will be one of several loanees returning to PSG after a season away. Some, like Mauro Icardi, improved their stock; meanwhile, others, like Julian Draxler, could have done more to create a market for their services heading into the 2023-24 season.
It will be interesting to see where Wijnaldum continues his career. Still, with Luis Enrique coming in and sporting advisor Luis Campos revamping the squad, it’s hard to envision him staying in Paris.
