Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum has been the subject of rumours stating that a potential move to Barcelona is basically done, and the Spanish giants have agreed on all terms with the player. This is due to him being out of a contract at the end of the season, and there are no signs of it being renewed even as of this point.
Speaking on the topic on the Here We Go podcast, Fabrizio Romano and Francesco Porzio stated that nothing was, in fact, ‘done’ and that nothing has been signed.
Barcelona are in the process of changing everything. The Blaugrana have a new President in the form of Joan Laporta, alongside a new board who have the responsibility of fixing everything. Ronald Koeman’s future as Barcelona coach next season is still not set in stone, and there is a chance that he could be asked to leave at the end of the season.
All that said, Koeman likes Wijnaldum and they know each other well from their time together in the Dutch national team. Barcelona want him and are talking to his agent to make the deal happen, but all that said, they have to plan for the future first, before signing any new players.
Romano further went on to state that there is a 90% chance Wijnaldum will leave. The last talks between Liverpool and the player for a contract extension were held in December, and there is no agreement even at this point in time. While there is a huge chance to see him out of Merseyside, nothing has been decided for sure yet.
