Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made a late move to hijack Gini Wijnaldum’s proposed switch to Barcelona.
The Liverpool star is out of contract with Liverpool at the end of the month.
All signs pointed to the 30-year-old linking up with former international manager Ronald Koeman at the Nou Camp.
The Times reported back in March that the midfielder had already reached a pre-contract agreement with Barca, though there has not been any official confirmation of that being the case.
According to ESPN, PSG have now tried their luck, attempting to take advantage of Barcelona’s dithering.
The report claims that the offer made to Wijnaldum by PSG is more financially rewarding than the one on the table from Barca.
It’s unclear at this time whether that’s something the Dutchman could be tempted by.

PSG have really left it until the eleventh hour here, but with the financial muscle that the Parisiens possess, they’re always going to stand a fighting chance of convincing a player to sign for them.
