Bad news comes from one of the Premier League giants, Liverpool. According to his information, their midfielder Georgino Wijnaldum has reached a pre-contract agreement with Barcelona.
In fact, Winjaldum himself is one of the midfielders that Jurgen Klopp has relied on a lot in recent years. Many other players have had a hard time getting rid of this Dutch player from the line-up of the Reds’ main squad.
With this situation, it means that Wijnaldum has been allowed to open talks with other clubs and even reached a pre-contract agreement to move in the summer for free.
Regarding this, The Times reported that Georgino Wijnaldum had actually reached a pre-contract agreement with one of the Spanish giants, Barcelona.
Still from the same report, the agreement will not be disclosed to the public until the summer transfer market is officially opened.
Some time ago, Wijnaldum himself had spoken about his future at Liverpool. However, at that time he admitted that he still could not provide any news, which was clear that he was happy and comfortable with his career at Anfield.
“Wow, lots of questions at one time! I want to answer them all for you, but at this time there is no news, ”
“I want to come with news, but the only thing I can say is that I am very happy with this club, very happy with the team, the staff and very happy with the fans I play for,” Wijnaldum said as quoted by Goal.
Actually, not only Barcelona is linked with Wijnaldum’s future, but also several other European giants including AC Milan, Inter Milan and even Paris Saint-Germain.
But of course, all these speculations will only be answered in the transfer market next summer.
In conclusion, Wijnaldum does indeed play a key role in the Liverpool squad, he is very good at playing the position as a defensive midfielder, especially when Fabinho has to step aside due to injury.
However, currently Wijnaldum’s contract at Anfield does remain until this summer of 2021. Meanwhile, until now there has been no news of a new contract extension.
