This transfer story rumbles on, and on and, well, on: Bundesliga (and now European) champion Thiago Alcantara in, Premier League winner Gini Wijnaldum out. Reports all over Europe yesterday were suggesting that should Wijnaldumleave Liverpool for Barcelona, former Barcelona man Thiago will come in as his replacement. With Dutchman Ronald Koeman taking the managerial hot seat at the Spanish giants, rumours have been racing around that Wijnaldum – now in the last year of his contract – is on Barcelona’s transfer wishlist.
