Dutch international Georginio Wijnaldum has revealed that he intends to leave PSV Eindhoven in the near future in favour of a move abroad.

The 23-year-old believes he will have to leave soon if his career is to progress and is hopeful of sealing a move abroad next summer. However, he also states that he intends to become Eredivisie champions with the Dutch club before he departs.

According to reports, both Manchester United and Arsenal have been tracking Wijnaldum during his time at PSV and that both Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger would be interested in signing him.

"Next summer would be a great time to take the next step."

Transfer ambition

PSV battled hard to keep the star winger at the club in the summer, but the Wijnaldum has now confirmed that he is actively looking to leave in the near future. Speaking to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, Wijnaldum said his time in Eindhoven was coming to an end.

He said: "Next summer would be a great time to take the next step.

"PSV also know that I am keen to play abroad, I am the age for it. Although I like it here, I do not want to become too old to go abroad, because I want to play there for a few years."

Manchester United favourites

Manchester United will certainly be confident of sealing Wijnaldum ahead of the Gunners. The Dutchman has already stated his fondness towards Van Gaal having helped the Netherlands to a third place finish at the World Cup.

Wijnaldum was one of many young stars to emerge for the Oranje in Brazil and the player has recently thanked Van Gaal.

When asked about Van Gaal, the midfield ace said: "He will always be special to me."

One condition

One sticking point in the deal may be whether or not PSV can win the Eredivisie this season. They are currently four point clear at the top of the table, but there is a long way to go. Should they fail to capitalise on their advantage, Wijnaldum may be tempted to stay another season.

He added: "First I want to be champion with PSV, and I will fight for it.

"If a club have been good to you and have always been there for you, I feel obliged to do me something in return for that club. I therefore do not wish to leave PSV straight away."
