Barcelona’s squad have banded together and expressed their discontent over the possible signing of Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum.
The 30-year-old is out of contract at Anfield in the summer and has been hotly tipped to make a switch to join La Liga giants Barcelona.
Given his international connections to manager Ronald Koeman, the proposed transfer, which would see the versatile and winning midfielder move for free, makes perfect sense.
However, in a shocking report from Mundo Deportivo, it has been claimed the Barcelona squad do not want Wijnaldum as a teammate.
If these claims are to be believed, Barcelona’s blockbuster squad would prefer to see their employers resign PSG’s Neymar than bring in Lyon’s Memphis Depay and Liverpool’s Wijnaldum.
Liverpool fans will likely take these reports as good news – although, keeping a first-team player just because another side do not want them isn’t really much to boast about.
