Barcelona and Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum are negotiating and Liverpool is unaware of any such summer transfer deal.
The 30-year-old has opted to quit Anfield when his deal expires this summer and has already signed a pre-contract with Barcelona, who have been chasing him for the past 12 months, according to the news on Sunday.
The Liverpool Echo reports to put a spanner in the works, that the club is unaware of any such deal and that Wijnaldum has not mentioned it to anybody at the club.
However, in this case, it doesn’t necessarily mean much. Given that Wijnaldum is in the last six months of his deal, he is under no pressure to inform anyone of his other club’s negotiations and is free to negotiate with Barcelona without Liverpool’s knowledge.
