Liverpool: Fans react as David Maddock delivers update on Georginio Wijnaldum’s contract talks - Liverpool

Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to some promising comments from journalist David Maddock on the future of Georginio Wijnaldum, after the Dutchman raised doubts about his contract situation earlier in the week.

The Anfield faithful were taken aback when Wijnaldum appeared to leave his future open in an interview this week, as he played his cards close to his chest and did not confirm whether or not he is planning to sign a new deal with the club.

The £45m-rated midfielder’s current contract expires in the summer of 2021, and he admitted he is in no rush to sort a deal, revealing ‘it is difficult to say’ what his future holds. Maddock though, who is the Mirror’s northern football correspondent, told Redmen TV: “The club will offer him a new contract. The key was not that, but that he’s approaching 30-years-old.

“When Liverpool are looking at contracts, they reward contracts for performance – but they also look at potential sell-on. But the fact is at 30-years-old, you give one more contract, you get nothing for it.”

He continued: “I suspect they’re talking to him about length, not money. They’ll give him the right money.”

Reds fans are breathing a rather large sigh of relief over Maddock’s update, as he revealed there are no qualms about the amount of money Wijnaldum should receive. While it sounds as if the new deal is still some way off being finalised, the Twitter reactions down below are feeling very positive about the latest news…
