The 30-year-old was a free agent after leaving Liverpool and seemed on his way to Barcelona until PSG swooped and blew the Catalan giants out of the water with their offer to the Netherlands captain

French sports daily L’Equipe and German newspaper Bild said the 47-year-old, who helped PSG reach the Champions League final in August, which they lost to Bayern Munich, was dismissed after Wednesday’s 4-0 win over Racing Strasbourg.

It will be recalled that the winger was not named in the matchday squad for Tuesday evening’s 1-1 draw of the Super Eagles of Nigeria with Tunisia as he had to return to France due to the injury he sustained against Algeria last Friday.

The 33-year-old was deemed surplus to requirements in the French capital, but he finished as PSG’s all-time top goalscorer with 200 goals in over 300 appearances in all competitions
