Liverpool midfielder <strong>Georginio Wijnaldum</strong> has reportedly made a decision on his future. According to The Times, the 30-year-old has agreed a pre-contract deal to join Barcelona at the end of the season. Wijnaldum has been on the radar of Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman since his appointment last year, but any potential deal was hampered by the club’s financial issues. However, Wijnaldum being out of contract at the end of the season means he will be able to join the Spanish giants on a free.

What the papers say

Harry Kane is believed to be privately considering leaving Tottenham in the summer. The Daily Star, citing The Athletic, says the Spurs striker has grown frustrated with the club’s lack of silverware, with Manchester United and Manchester City reportedly among the clubs linked with the England captain.

The Daily Mirror says Luke Shaw is on the verge of being given a new contract at Manchester United. The 25-year-old defender had struggled at Old Trafford, but a stellar return to form this season has convinced club bosses to draw up a new deal, which is believed to include a pay bump to bring him in line with some of United’s biggest earners.

The Sun reports Crystal Palace are planning a move for Juventus defender Radu Dragusin. The 19-year-old has struggled for consistent playing time in Italy and could slot straight into the first team at Selhurst Park if a free transfer is agreed at the end of the season.
