Joan Laporta Was the Cause of Ronald Koeman’s Failure to Sign Georginio Wijnaldum to Barcelona

Joan Laporta was the cause of Ronald Koeman’s failure to bring Georginio Wijanldum to Barcelona which will be discussed in this article. Ronald Koeman revealed he was close to bringing Georginio Wijnalduk to Camp Nou.

As is known, Ronald Koeman was officially sacked from Barcelona in October 2021 ago. This is because the Blaugrana – Barcelona’s nickname – swallowed a minor result that made them perched in the middle board at that time.

But aside from that, Ronald Koeman recently revealed that he was close to signing Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool. The incident occurred in the summer of 2021 transfer market.

At that time, Ronald Koeman was interested in signing him to strengthen their midfield. Moreover, Georginio Wijnaldum is a free transfer. However, the path was not smooth.

Ronald Koeman said it failed because of interference from Barcelona president Joan Laporta. As a result, Georginio Wijnaldum also chose to move closer to Paris Saint-Germain.

“I tried to sign Georginio Wijnaldum for Barcelona,” said Ronald Koeman, quoted from Barca Universal, Thursday (22/9/2022).

“But I failed because the President bothered me instead of bringing players in. The delay was the reason he chose PSG,” continued Ronald Koeman.

“If that doesn’t happen, maybe he will play for Barcelona.” Georginio Wijnaldum is not a new figure for Ronald Koeman. Given, they work together in the Dutch national team. Meanwhile, the 31-year-old midfielder is currently playing for AS Roma.
