Georginio Wijnaldum’s PSG move decision hands a blow for Man Utd.

Georginio Wijnaldum’s choice to join Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window has led to a setback for Manchester United.

Wijnaldum had been anticipated to sign for Barcelona after his deal with Liverpool lapsed until PSG more than doubled the Catalan club’s offer.

And the midfielder’s plausible decision to choose the French outfit over Barca has had a knock-on effect for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

After missing on Wijnaldum, Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman is likely to be able to offer more game time to United target Ilaix Moriba next season.

The 18-year-old made 14 appearances in La Liga this term, as well as three in the Copa del Rey and one in the Champions League.

He is considered as one of the best young talents to have appeared from Barca’s La Masia academy in recent years and has been linked with interest from Premier League opponents Manchester City and Chelsea, as well as United.

Solskjaer has brought teenagers Amad and Facundo Pellistri to Old Trafford over the antecedent season, and Moriba would fit well with his knowledge of signing young, talented players who can grow with his side.

But Sport insists Koeman is ready to put his trust in the youngster next term after missing out on the hugely experienced Wijnaldum.

And according to La Vanguardia, cited by Sport Witness, Moriba is supposed to sign a new three-year contract with the La Liga giants next week.

His current contract expires in July next year – but Wijnaldum’s decision to join PSG seems to have made it more likely the Spain under-19 international will stay in his native country.

He is said to be ‘delighted’ to play for Barcelona – with his pay seemingly the only issue to be resolved in agreement talks.

With Wijnaldum on his way to France, the Blaugrana may be able to make Moriba an offer befitting his anticipated rise to first-team rank next season.

And that could mean it’s back to the drawing board for Solskjaer as he looks to draw more promising prospects to United.

The Red Devils are also believed to be targeting Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and Real Madrid center-back Raphael Varane this summer, and have been linked with a move for wantaway Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
