Today, an English press report confirmed that Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is set to step up to a Spanish giant at the Mercato next summer.

Wijnaldum’s 30-year contract with Liverpool expires at the end of the current season, as compatriot Ronald Koeman, Barcelona coach, seeks to bring him to Camp Nou.

According to the British newspaper “Mirror”, Wijnaldum will block Liverpool’s attempts to renew his contract in order to settle for free in Barcelona during the summer and to fulfill his childhood dream.

Despite his importance at Anfield for Liverpool and seeing him as an indispensable part of his coach Jurgen Klopp’s squad, Wijnaldum only plans to play with the Barcelona shirt next season.

The report stated that Wijnaldum had a childhood dream of playing for Barcelona ​​and following the lead of many Netherlands national team stars who played for the Catalan club, such as Johan Cruyff, Ronald Koeman, and Frank Rijkaard.

At the same time, Koeman’s leadership at Barcelona reinforced Wijnaldum’s desire, as he oversaw his training in the Netherlands national team and placed great trust in him.
