Gini Wijnaldum has insisted that he didn’t join Paris Saint-Germain over Barcelona for the money.

The Dutchman revealed that the French giants were ‘faster’ and ‘more decisive’ than the LaLiga side.

Wijnaldum elected to leave Liverpool upon the expiry of his contract, after five successful seasons at Anfield.

And after weeks of of speculation, he chose Parc des Princes as his next destination.

However, his move to Paris came after Barcelona and Bayern Munich had both been trying to sign the midfielder, with the Spanish side locked in talks with the Netherlands captain for up to four weeks.

“I made another choice. It was very difficult. I was negotiating with Barcelona for four weeks, and we never reached a final decision,” Wijnaldum revealed ahead of Netherlands’ Euro 2020 opener against Ukraine on Sunday.

“Paris Saint-Germain were a bit better in making a decision. They were quicker. And the project that they have at PSG it really appealed to me.

“It was a difficult choice I have to be honest. I thought I would be moving to Barcelona because they were the only team who were really interested in me, but we did not reach an agreement together.

“PSG were much clearer in making that decision.”
