« PSG even arrived for Barça. We had just talked, but it was not really negotiations. But they came back to the interest of Barça. I talked to Leonardo and then to Pochettino, whom I knew from his time at Tottenham, where I once spoke to him because he wanted to recruit me. At that point, I already had a good feeling about working with him. He explained to me the PSG project, the fact that they want to win more titles in France but also in Europe. He told me what kind of club it was. I told myself it was a good project and I told her I was open to listening to her. From there, the negotiations went very well and they did everything, really everything, to draw me. They were quick in the negotiations and I had a good feeling about signing for PSG. It was not about earning more money here because the difference was not that big. I deny that I chose PSG for the money “, has indicated Winaam.
