Georginio Wijnaldum has hinted that there was more to the story regarding his departure from Liverpool this summer.
The Dutchman, who is set to play a featured role for the Netherlands at the Euros over the next few weeks, officially left the Reds in favour of a move to Paris Saint-Germain yesterday on a three-year deal. The move will be completed on July 1 with Wijnaldum bringing his five-year stint at Anfield to an end.

There had been a great deal of speculation surrounding his future since the turn of the year with many wondering where he’d end up next. Now, during a recent interview, Wijnaldum has touched on how emotional it was to leave the English giants – before also indicating that there may be more to this tale than meets the eye.
“It’s really special,” he said of his Liverpool days. “The fans have sung my name. Week in, week out, they saw I was giving 100% to give everything for this club.
“I’m fighting against tears right now. The people in Liverpool have shown me love during the five years. I will miss them, you know. We will see what I will do in the next couple of weeks. I will rest a little bit then go to the national team.
“I will have to look at my story and how everything went. The fans deserve to know the story behind it.”
It’s already been noted that there was a layer of difficulty behind the move but based on what he’s saying, it does feel as if things may actually run deeper than first thought.
While his attentions will firmly be set on the Euros for now, it’ll certainly be interesting to hear what comes out about his transfer saga.
