RomaPress – Discussions between Roma and PSG regarding a deal surrounding Georginio Wijnaldum are nearing a positive conclusion.
The Giallorossi have been in pursuit of the midfielder since the beginning of the month, however, his wages proved to be a stumbling block to completing the deal.
Wijnaldum’s agent, Humphry Nijman, met with both clubs in recent days, pushing to find a resolution for the Dutchman before the season begins in two weeks.
Talks between the two clubs are progressing following a series of meeting held yesterday throughout the day and into early this morning.
Up until today, PSG insisted the Giallorossi would be responsible for paying all of Wijnaldum’s €9 million in net wages—a figure well above the capital club’s capabilities.
However, the French giants finally relented during yesterday’s summit, agreeing to pay nearly a quarter of the player’s wages if he joins Roma on loan.
The Giallorossi, meanwhile, lowered the criteria regarding the obligation to buy that’s expected to be inserted into the operation.
