RomaPress – Sources from Roma along with a member of Georginio Wijnaldum’s entourage have confirmed the Dutch midfielder is just steps away from joining the Giallorossi, becoming the latest transfer coup for the capital club.

Roma met with the French giants throughout the evening in an attempt to overcome disagreements regarding the financial framework of the operation.

After meeting for several hours, the parties managed to overcome the lingering hurdles after PSG met with the representatives of Renato Sanches, who they’ve selected to replace Wijnaldum.

As RomaPress reported earlier this week, the Giallorossi convinced the French giants to pay an important portion of the midfielder’s wages (25%) after they initially insisted all interested parties would be responsible for paying 100% of his salary.

Though, major progress was made late tonight after Humphry Nijman, the agent of Wijnaldum, informed both clubs that his client would be willing to make further concessions on his wages to facilitate the deal.

The clubs haven’t signed the documents but they departed company tonight with an agreement in place for Wijnaldum to join Roma on loan. They’ll reconvene late tomorrow morning, which is when they’re expect to finalise the operation.
