The French Champions made their move on the back of Wijnaldum’s impressive performances at the 2014 World Cup. Parisians were thwarted in their approach as the 24 year felt he would be better served staying with the Boeren.

Speaking to Voetbal international this is what the Netherlands international said,

“Paris Saint-Germain were interested in signing me. They showed an interest when I was on a good run of form,”

“It was confirmation for me that I was on the right track, but my heart told me that I should stay at PSV and that I still had unfinished business here. PSV are a great club and I enjoy being here.”

“I have little doubt that more clubs of PSG’s stature will come knocking in the future. It simply didn’t suit my plans for the future. I desperate want to win the Eredivisie title first.”

The former Feyenoord man has been impressive for his club both domestically and in Europe scoring 10 goals in total.
