Welcome back to TalkBarca. We are going to talk about the transfer of Georginio Wijnaldum to Barcelona. The transfer market is still hot as Lionel Messi has decided to stay at FC Barcelona. Barcelona is heading into the season with a lot of players still in their vision to bring to the Camp Nou. We are going to talk about one player today. The player under consideration today is Georginio Wijnaldum. Barcelona is eyeing to bring the current Liverpool FC player to the Camp Nou. Wijnaldum is a very calm customer in football world, but is he a proper FC Barcelona material?
GEORGINIO WIJNALDUM TO FC BARCELONA
Barcelona is looking to make a major impact in the transfer market this season. The new manager, Ronald Koemann is keeping eyes on a lot of players. It is going to be interesting how Ronald plays his cards to bring Lautaro or any other sensation to the Camp Nou. However, Barcelona’s latest concern is the current Liverpool FC midfielder, Wijnaldum. Barca fans and the players do not have great memories with Wijnaldum. He scored a brilliant goal against Barca in the Champions League over a year ago. However, Koemann now thinks that he needs him at Barcelona.
Gini in a major player in the Liverpool squad and he has contributed a lot in their first Premier League win after so many years. However, there is an ongoing debate that whether Barcelona should go for Alcantara or Wijnaldum. I am going to cover this topic in another article soon. However, Wijnaldum is younger and can benefit Barcelona since Koemann is looking for players who can stay for long term. Still, he has a long way to go in football and he has a lot to learn yet. It takes great expertise to run Barca’s midfield.
Wijnaldum is very good tactically and he can bring something to Barcelona if he gets enough playing time. I highly doubt that. However, Wijnaldum is a very calm and sound player who can read the game well and play useful passes. We have seen him playing in Liverpool where he calmly controls the things in the midfield. One positive factor about him is that he is another Dutchman who can combine pretty well with Frenkie De Jong. The rumors of Van De Beek have ended as Van has officially moved to Manchester United. Therefore, Gini might be Koemann’s top target.
Unfortunately, I do not believe that Wijnaldum can be that guy for FC Barcelona who can come in and create a major impact. Barcelona has a lot of options in the midfield and Koemann should consider saving money on this transfer. It is true that he is a Dutchman who can have great chemistry with De Jong. However, Barcelona still has many other positions which they must spend on. I think Koemann must consider strengthening the defense and attack first and then focus on midfield. Time is going to tell if Wijnaldum leaves Liverpool and come to Barcelona.
VISCA EL BARCA!
