FC Barcelona is in its worst form right now. After the defeat against FC Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals, the Barcelona players and the board were devasted. Losing a match is not a big deal, but the final score was 8-2, which is the worst defeat Barcelona has ever faced in their history. It is also the worst quarter-final knockout of all time. Quique Setien got sacked in no time and was replaced by former Barcelona legend Ronald Koeman.
The worst news for the Barcelona players and the fans is that even Messi decided to leave the club. Messi is meant to win trophies, and he thinks that the way the club’s president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, is handling the club right now is not enough to win any trophies. Even after the arrival of Koeman, Messi did not change his decision to resign as a Barcelona player. Ronald Koeman’s job is now more difficult as Lionel Messi will not play for the club anymore. Koeman will have to build the team from scratch.
Who does Ronald Koeman plan on bringing in?
Ronald Koeman has already thought of a few players that he wants to bring in at Barcelona. One of the players in the Dutch superstar, Georginio Wijnaldum. Right now, Wijnaldum plays for Liverpool FC. Wijnaldum has won many trophies with Liverpool FC, including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and the Premier League. He also had a big hand in the win over Barcelona when Liverpool knocked out Barcelona in the second leg of the 2018-19 Champions League semi-finals. The Dutch midfielder scored twice in that game in a time of just 3 minutes. It was one of the best victories in Liverpool’s history and also one of the worst defeats in Barcelona’s history.
Ronald Koeman knows the Netherland players very well and thinks that Georginio Wijnaldum will fit perfectly in the Barcelona squad. Wijnaldum is also close to the end of his contract with Liverpool. The English Champions will surely try to sell him as they do not want to give away any player as a free agent to the other teams. This news is not yet confirmed, but all the conditions just fit in perfectly in this transfer saga. Georginio Wijnaldum is a very talented and skillful player. We know that for whichever club he will play, it will turn out to be the best for that club only. We will keep you updated regarding the latest transfer news of the footballing world. Until then, stay tuned and stay safe.
