Gini Wijnaldum offers transfer advice to Kylian Mbappe amid Liverpool speculation – Liverpool Echo

Georginio Wijnaldum has given new PSG teammate and reported Liverpool target Kylian Mbappe some transfer advice.

The Holland international joined the French giants on a free transfer this summer after five years at Anfield while Mbappe continues to be linked with a switch the other way.

The 22-year-old, tipped to one day take the crown from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player on the planet, joined PSG from Monaco in a £130m deal in 2018 but his contract is set to expire next summer.

Liverpool and Real Madrid are the two clubs linked with Mbappe but FSG are unlikely to sanction a huge deal to sign the French superstar.

Wijnaldum – who recently joined up with his new teammates in Paris after EURO 2020 – is keen for Mbappe to remain at PSG.

Speaking to RMC Sport, via Goal, Wijnaldum revealed, “Everyone wants Mbappe to stay, starting with me because he is one of the reasons that made me come to PSG, to play with players like him.

“I was already very happy to see that Neymar had extended.

“I’ve been in that position too and most of the time you follow your feelings,”

“I just hope his is go to PSG because the club are doing their best to make this team the best in the world.”

Wijandlum, who turns 31 in November, has made four moves during his career, appearing for Feyenoord, PSV and Newcastle before joining Liverpool and believes Mbappe will follow his ‘feelings’ when deciding his future.

Speaking of the attacker’s current situation being linked with a move, Wijnaldum said, “I’ve been in that position too and most of the time you follow your feelings,”

“I just hope his is go to PSG because the club are doing their best to make this team the best in the world.”
