Georginio Wijnaldum to Liverpool: ‘Don’t whine about paying £25m – we got £15m for Jordon Ibe!’

21 Jul

As Georginio Wijnaldum edges closer to a Liverpool, fans are yet to be convinced. 

The Reds are understood to have had an offer worth around £25m accepted by Newcastle for the Dutch midfielder and are now in discussions with the player.

The 25-year-old will leave the Championship side after just one season on Tyneside and he won’t come cheap. 

Wijnaldum, who has 30 caps with the Netherlands, featured in all of United’s Premier League games last term, scoring five and laying on 11 assists. 

With the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana as creative midfielders, some fans believe manager Jurgen Klopp should be strengthening elsewhere.

Whereas others look at Mario Gotze’s return to Borussia Dortmund for around £22m and Paul Pogba’s rumoured mega move to Manchester United and feel they have been short changed.
