Jose Mourinho’s Roma are preparing a loan offer to PSG for ex-Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum

Jose Mourinho’s Roma are preparing a loan offer to save Georginio Wijnaldum from PSG after the former Liverpool midfielder’s nightmare with the French giants

  • Georginio Wijnaldum to move to Rome on loan with obligation to buy
  • The Dutch midfielder struggled to stay consistent during his time at PSG
  • PSG to pay ex-Liverpool star half salary throughout his loan spell
  • Jose Mourinho’s side will be forced to pay up to £13m for the midfielder

Georginio Wijnaldum is set to move to Roma on a one-year loan, according to a report from goal.com.

Jose Mourinho is currently believed to be working on a deal which will include an obligation for the Europa Conference League winners to buy the Netherlands international for up to £13m.

Wijnaldum arrived at Parc des Princes after five successful seasons as a central member of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side, winning both the Premier League and Champions League during his time at the club.

Georginio Wijnaldum often found himself struggling for minutes after signing for PSG in 2021

After his contract expired at the end of the 2020-21 season, Wijnaldum looked set to sign for Barcelona before PSG offered the Dutchman a salary of around £150,000 a week.

Despite his impressive run, Wijnaldum’s arrival at the French club has been overshadowed by big-name signings such as Gianluigi Donarumma, Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi.

After starting the first four league games of the campaign, the 31-year-old then struggled to create a cohesive space for himself within star-studded PSG, and increasingly found himself relegated to the rank of full-fledged player while the Parisian club stalled. his 10th championship title.

Wijnaldum has expressed concerns over the lack of playing time in February while on international duty.

“It’s something different and you have to get used to it,” he told reporters. “I was really looking forward to the next stage and then it happens. It’s very difficult.’

Although the former Dutch player of the year later claimed his words had been misinterpreted, his playing time did not increase, starting just five league games between Christmas and the end of the season.

In his first full season as Roma boss, Mourinho led the team to a sixth-place finish in Serie A and, by winning the UEFA Conference League, he won the club’s first European title since 1961.

Wijnaldum joins fellow new signings Zeki Celik, Paulo Dybala and Namanja Matic as Mourinho looks to build on his success in his second season at the Stadio Olimpico.
