      Barca should have cashed in on Messi.. could have eased their financial situation... PSG or City would have paid the asking price, now they stand to lose him for fuckall...
      Plus Rumours going around Koeman will leave end of season..

      Handshake deal allegedly done with Inter.

      Beyone belief he is an option for the armband for me. Just hope we have not missed out on our first choice replacement while waiting for him to state his intentions

      Think we already have his replacement already to be honest

      Yup look like either Bissouma or Rodrigo de Paul will replace Gini.

      Both are good players.

      I reckon Gravenberch will go for 20 to 25 million and we would regret not getting him.

      Give it 3 years and Id wager that lad being regarded as the bedt midfielder in the game

      Both Gravenberch and a more experienced ready made replacement for Gini as well would be great as there wouldn't be pressure to fast track Gravenberch in to the first team.

      It does look like he will be a world class player.

      IMO Thiago is Gini replacement. Then within 3 seasons Jones should takeover that position.

      I know the common thought is we get some of our players back and we fight city for the title next season, but that sadly might not be the case. Gini leaving or not, the way this season has happened and with an international tournament to come at the end of this season and the next season, history could well repeat itself.

      I guess what I'm saying is that Gini might fancy a new challenge with a different club rather than start on a new journey with us while we look to rebuild on a covid budget.

      If it's true we can only wish him the best. Fantastic servant to the club, both with his performances and his personality off the pitch. Will be missed, but you never know whether it was him holding out or the club unwilling to do a deal. Either way I don't begrudge him a new challenge in a new country.

      Let's replace him with Ødegaard.

      Barca have denied it bit of a circus right now. Love Gini but this should have been settled by now can’t imagine he’s fully focused on his football at the moment having to think about his last real pay deal in his career.

      Both Thiago and Gini have had absolutely poor stats. Gini scores 2 or 3 goals per season and provides an assist one very rare occasions. You might be spot on.

      Stats don't even tell half a story when applied to our midfield.

      Look at the stats for midfielders at other clubs, then compare them to our fullbacks.

      Then take that clubs FB stats and compare them to our midfielders.

      Then the penny might drop.

      Yes.

      Anybody who is ever involved in a debate about the stats of our midfield under Klopp, first of all, needs to have knowledge of the game and, then, you can refer to the post, above.

      Yep I wish him the best as well and can understand wanting to try playing in Spain and Barca no matter when you go there is a huge club.

      Personally, and it's no slight on his efforts, I'd be hoping we don't play him game in game out now and focus on the players who have a long term future here

      Yeah mate agreed, he can play the 2 games against Real Madrid because he's going to have to get a jump on that rivalry from next season but apart from that, he can sit on the bench for me!

      Gini might not get the headlines, but he's incredibly consistent and plays a LOT of games.
      Will never forget his two goals in the semi vs Barca.
      Seems like a modest quiet guy who gets on with it, does exactly what Jürgen wants, and it suited his game.
      Big opportunity at Barca, with the coach there who knows him, can't begrudge him a change.
      If he goes, which seems likely, all the best to him.
      We'll be weaker for loosing him, and he needs to be replaced [he's a very consistent starter].

      Hahahaha f**k off comparing Gini to the likes of Thiago and Fab you divvy. And calling him iron man is complete irony. There is a reason he doesn't get injured!!

      Gini is a decent player who never gets injured... however he always seems to be in the place where the ball isn’t!!!! People tell me he covers every blade of grass when he plays but so does my lawnmower...
      He hasn’t had an assist in a premier league goal in nearly 3 seasons... pathetic
      Am glad he’s off to Barca and allow the future in Curtis and others to shine... he’s not prepared to sign a contract for Liverpool so don’t beg him to and certainly don’t play him cos his passing is too slow and usually sideways or backwards and creativity is nil... yer I’ll never forget the 2 goals against Barca but he did come on as sub and that’s probably his best position...
