Georginio Wijnaldum has signed a three-year deal with Paris St-Germain after leaving Liverpool on a free transfer.
The Netherlands midfielder, 30, opted against signing a new contract at Anfield and moves to the French capital after being linked with Barcelona.
“I’m joining one of the best squads in Europe and I want to bring all my desire and commitment to this ambitious project,” Wijnaldum said.
Wijnaldum joined Liverpool from Newcastle United for £25m in 2016.
PSG is understood to have made a better offer than Barca with manager Mauricio Pochettino’s presence also thought to have been a factor in Wijnaldum’s decision.
Pochettino is preparing for his first full season in charge of PSG after missing out on the Ligue 1 title to Lille.
Wijnaldum, who is part of the Netherlands squad for Euro 2020, added: “Paris St-Germain have proved how good they are in recent years, and I am conviced that together we can go even further and higher.”
