Yesterday saw the official announcement that Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has left the club.

The Dutchman was set to leave the club as a free agent at the end of the season with his contract running out.

Liverpool had tried to agree a renewal of his current deal but an agreement could not be reached.

This led Wijnaldum to seek pastures new, with him initially thought to be joining La Liga club Barcelona.

It was reported by Fabrizio Romano that Wijnaldum had reached a verbal agreement with the Catalan club.

However, a swoop at the last hour from PSG saw the French side offer double the salary of that of Barcelona.

Last night saw the announcement from both Liverpool and PSG of Wijnaldum’s departure…

It is heartbreaking to see Wijnaldum leave given his contributions to the club over the last 5 years.

The midfielder joined the Reds from Newcastle in 2016 for just under £25million.

During his time at Anfield, Wijnaldum helped the Reds to Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and Club World Cup victory.

Not only this, but he became a favourite of Jurgen Klopp, with the German very rarely leaving him out of the starting XI.

Wijnaldum is Klopp’s second most-used player at Liverpool with an incredible 237 appearances under his belt.

His departure will leave a huge void in the Liverpool squad and his presence will be sorely missed.

Hopefully, the Reds will manage to find an adequate replacement for the Dutchman, which will be a tall order.

Wijnaldum leaves the club as a Liverpool legend, and we wish him all the best.
