And he's also 29.

So what's the point of taking Wij out and replace with similar player who needs time to gel.

And is a doubt fitness wise?

Could it be about money? With FSG? No way!

I think this Thiago thing is all smoke and mirrors

This really is a Football vs Commercial dilemma from both the and player's perspective.

From a footballing sense neither the club or the player will want to break up such a successful relationship right at its peak.

But on the other hand this will probably be the last chance the club will be able to command a big fee for Gini or for him to complete a big/lucrative move.

Oh the problems of success!!!!

The danger of keeping him as has been said is the issue of big wages for a player (who will probably not always get a game) when he reaches say, 32.

The Alcantara move could be smoke and mirrors to flush the deal out for a Wijnaldum agreement.

Strangely enough although important to us he hasn't had an assist for us in the last 2 seasons. Replacing him seems like the Moneyball approach.
