As good a servant to the club he has been, he can’t be allowed to hold us to ransom as it were. If he’s not going to sign a contract, and is determined to force a move to Barca, ok if we get the right price for him. If not, get Thiago in snd put Gini in the ressies. If he gets pissed and doesn’t turn up for training, withhold his wages.
Our own players and other clubs can not be allowed to take the piss and rip us off.
I’d also like to know why he would be holding out for a move to Barca. Was there any approach to the club from the former manager? I didn’t hear of anything.
So how long has Koeman had an interest in him. How long has he known he was gonna be the new manager of Barca. The non signing of Ginis contract saga has been going on long before Koeman was appointed!
So has there been words previously, ie an illegal approach ?
It all seems a bit irregular considering how long Gini has been holding out, and how long Koeman has been at Barca.
You don’t just decide not to take the offer of a new contract because you want to play for Barcelona unless someone has indicated they were coming for you. Something underhand here unless they did approach the club and it’s been kept quiet !
