In an interview with RMC Sport, Wijnaldum, who recovers the No. 18 from Moïse Kean, underlined the importance of Mauricio Pochettino in his choice to come to the capital rather than Barcelona: “I spoke to Leonardo, then to Pochettino whom I had known from his time at Tottenham, where I had spoken to him once because he wanted to recruit me.
At the time, I already had a good feeling about working with him.
He explained to me the PSG project, the fact that they want to win more titles in France but also in Europe.
He told me what kind of club it was.
I told myself it was a good project and told them that I was open to listen to them.
The player returned to this bet: “It's funny and I must admit that it was a very difficult choice.
I have supported Barça since I was young, I am a fan of this club.
We were in negotiations with them and I had a good feeling but I was also negotiating with other clubs.
PSG even arrived before Barça.
We had just talked but it wasn't really negotiations.
But they returned after Barça's interest.
From there, the negotiations went very well and they did everything, really everything, to get me to sign.
They were faster in the negotiations and I had a good feeling about signing for PSG.
It wasn't about making more money here because the difference wasn't that huge.
I deny having chosen PSG for the money.
