Gini contract stalemate

When Liverpool signed Gini Wijnaldum in 2016 few could’ve imagined how important he’d be to the side.

There aren’t many outfield players in the division who have played as much football as the Dutchman has in the past five years.

He has been an undroppable presence in the midfield since his arrival from Newcaslte.

During his time at Anfield he has been moulded into a dynamic box-to-box ball winner, a man who will win it and keep it.

Despite his importance to the side the Reds have been unable to offer him a deal good enough to keep him.

The Dutchman’s contract expires at the end of the season and he looks set to leave on a free transfer.

Gini Wijnaldum on Barcelona

One club has stood out among the pack of suitors in the past year.

Although the midfielder has been linked with moves to near enough every top club in Europe one has always been at the front of the queue.

According to The Mirror, Gini Wijnaldum has told friends he sees his future at Barcelona.

The Dutchman is said to be keen to link up with Ronald Koeman and international teammate Memphis Depay who is also being linked with a free transfer to the Camp Nou.

What RTK has to say

It’ll be heartbreaking to see Gini go.

We can only hope that his departure will see an exciting replacement come in.

We expect his successor to be young and set to stay with the club for a number of years.
