"Ronald Koeman, the Barcelona head coach, will seek to capitalise on the contract stalemate between Liverpool and Georginio Wijnaldum by signing the midfielder. While there has been no official club to club contact, Koeman is expected to push the Barcelona board to make a firm enquiry. The development could open the way for Thiago Alcantara to replace Wijnaldum at Liverpool" Paul Joyce. Looks like Wij could be on his way for Thiago, will be sad to see him go.

Differing stories from the local nd Dutch/ Spanish press. Local saying that there has been no contact whatsoever from Barcelona yet the foreign guys seem to think he has sorted terms on the wage and length of his contract. Surely the contract agreement can't be true if Liverpool havnt talked with Barca, which means they cudnt have given Barcelona and Koeman permission to speak to the player.

{Ed002's Note - They can agree details with his agent but my understanding is that there has been no approach to Liverpool at this time.}

What a shame Wij is apparently leaving, he has been outstanding the last few years and it will be a sad day when he does go, but i will for one wish him all the best, he has helped bring champions league, world club and premier league titles to us. YNWA.

He will do very well at Barca. He is a terrific player when his shackles are off. scores goals for fun. Koeman knows how to use him.

03 Sep 2020 12:14:16
Then make it snappy please Barca, time is of the essence.

03 Sep 2020 12:15:33
Obvious question Ed but you would expect contact to Liverpool would follow.

{Ed002's Note - There is a good chance - but they could just look to wait until January and look to agree a Free Agent deal. Right now they are dealing with other matters.}

I do like Gini a lot but find it difficult to say he has been consistently outstanding for years. I can recall too many games when he's gone missing, read too many player ratings articles in which he got a 6. He has been outstanding in plenty of games as well, and i love the way he holds onto the ball in midfield, but I genuinely think that Thiago is a big upgrade on Gini. He can do everything Gini can do and more, and better. I wish Gini well, but if Thiago arrives in his place I'm more than happy with that. I know he's a different kind of player and more of an attacking goal threat, but Gini just doesn't have the same range of passing from midfield.

PS: Check out the recent video of Thiago and Rodri in Spain training, nonchalantly volleying the ball to each other across the pitch.

Never ceases to amaze me how some people see a rumour and take it as gospel, already waving goodbye to Wijnaldum.
He's still very much a Liverpool player and unless anything changes he will remain so. Despite what crap appears on Twatter or any other clickbait sites.

03 Sep 2020 15:08:12
Paul Joyce isn't a clickbait source. He's Liverpool's correspondent for the Times. Only reports when something is 100%.

03 Sep 2020 15:22:13
he doesn’t have a contract from the end of this season Flash so it very much looks like he’s off - just a matter of when and Ed’s have confirmed Klopp wants Thiago Prob once we get some money from sales.

Hi Ed's, surely by waiting until January it gives other clubs the chance to steal in. Also, what does the player do? Sit tight and leave on a sour note? Just hope we get the deal done asap.

{Ed002's Note - Well the club get another year out of the player. Plenty of transfers happen this way.}
