Georginio Wijnaldum refused to say much when asked about the rumours that he is leaving Liverpool for Barcelona.

Ronald Koeman reportedly wants to make Wijnaldum his first signing as Barcelona boss and is willing to pay up to €20 million for the midfielder.

Wijnaldum faced the press on Thursday in the pre-game press conference before Netherlands v Poland, and unsurprisingly was asked about the rumours.

He responded with a smile every time with, “It’s a rumour, I have nothing to say about it.”

Wijnaldum is happy to be back with the Dutch national team, “I am very happy that we can be together again. We have a team that gets along well, missed each other. Lots of guys have the same interests. You will miss that, also because it went very well at the Dutch national team. Now there was a gap of nine months, which made the loss only greater.”
