Roma closing in on Wijnaldum after PSG agree to pay part of wages

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.

They’re currently favorites to win against Salernitana on August 14, 2022 in their first 2022/23 Serie A match.
