Real Madrid prepared to offer Liverpool £26m for 26-year-old midfielder – report

Posted by

Real Madrid are reportedly interested in Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita and are willing to offer £25.7 million to entice the Reds.

That’s according to Spanish outlet Todofichajes, who claim Los Blancos are aware they need to ‘rejuvenate their squad a little’ this summer.

The timing of the report is somewhat interesting, with Liverpool set to travel to Madrid in just a couple of weeks for a massive Champions League fixture.

One may suspect this rumour has been placed in the Spanish media to stir up problems at Anfield – if so, we’re sure that plan will fall flat on its face.

The quoted amount of €30 million (£25.7m) is also insulting, with Liverpool obviously primed to laugh off such a low offer for Keita.

Todofichajes go on to claim the Reds would reject Real Madrid’s offer and demand at least €40 million (£34.3m), but even that seems too low for a player who cost over £50 million just three years ago.

For what it’s worth, Reds – this report is worth highlighting, but the idea of Keita moving to Real Madrid for a fee of around £30 million is pure lunacy and should be ignored.

  1. If memory serves me, I am quite sure this isn’t the first time Real Madrid having been using Spanish media outlets to stir discontent within the opposing sides team. In LFC case, more than a few times. Its typical and to be expected from RM…not quite the powerhouse they once were. I’m sure the LFC faithful, players and coaches are more than weary of there mind games. Lets hope Naby lad can show off his talent, provided he stays injury free, and give the Spanish media something else to write about.
