Liverpool midfielder Georgino Wijnaldum has discounted the reported interest shown in him by Barcelona during the transfer window.
At one stage the 28-year-old was heavily linked with a move to the No Camp and a reunion with his former national team manager Ronald Koeman.
Wijnaldum though has claimed that there was little substance to the rumours, and that he never came close to leaving Liverpool over the summer.
This still leaves his future in some doubt. He is into the last ten months of his current contract and, although there have been suggestions that he will be offered a new deal at the club, nothing has materialised yet.
He expects to stay at Liverpool but “you never know in football. We will see what happens”.
The midfielder is way with the Dutch national squad at the moment now managed by Frank de Boer and will be hoping to erase the memories of last Sunday when he was part of the Liverpool team thrashed 7 – 2 by Aston Villa.
