Wijnaldum to Stay in Roma Only on One Condition

Roma loanee Georginio Wijnaldum could extend his stay at the Stadio Olimpico, provided he agrees to one condition by the capital club. However, as it stands, he is set to return to PSG. The Dutch midfielder is one of the club’s highest earners, prompting the Giallorossi management to rethink their deal, which includes the option to buy.

As per Corriere della Sera (via VoceGiallorossa), Wijnaldum is closer to the exit door than the deal to extend his loan. Roma and Paris Saint-Germain reportedly cannot find an agreement to prolong the central midfielder’s loan deal for another year.

Wijnaldum is Roma’s fifth highest earner, with a gross annual income of approximately €6.5M – according to Capology – way ahead of the likes of Rui Patricio, Chris Smalling, Tammy Abraham and Bryan Cristante, to name a few.

The only viable reason Roma would stick with Wijnaldum is through the reduction of his salary, which is considered too high for the player’s input. He has been restricted to just 22 appearances under Jose Mourinho, having been ruled out for large parts earlier in the season due to injury and fitness problems.
