The Dutch midfielder is out of contract at Liverpool this summer and, having rejected a proposal from the Reds, is leaving in search of a new chapter in his career.

 

Barcelona have been chasing Wijnaldum, but there had been no agreement at the club on signing him, despite coach Ronald Koeman pushing for him to arrive.

 

 

Now the Camp Nou giants have agreed a deal with Wijnaldum which will run for three years.

 

It is claimed that Koeman and star man Lionel Messi have given the green light to the swoop and it will now be completed.

 

 

Barcelona will not pay a fee for Wijnaldum, but it remains to be seen what salary the Dutchman has agreed to take home from the Camp Nou.

 

The midfielder will bolster Barcelona’s options in the centre of the park, following a third place finish in La Liga this season.

 

 

Wijnaldum was also linked with German giants Bayern Munich, while two Premier League clubs are claimed to have made contact with the Dutchman.
