Leipzig chief ‘bored’ of talk linking Keita with a big money move to Liverpool

Date Posted,July 3, 2017

Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff insists he is ‘bored’ by constant speculation linking star midfielder Naby Keita with a big money move to Liverpool .

According to the Liverpool Echo , the Reds are ready to shatter the club’s transfer record as they look to strike a deal to sign the talented 22-year-old who is reported to be keen on a move to Anfield.

Keita is under contract with the German club until 2020 and Mintzlaff remains adamant that the Guinea international is not for sale and expects to see him report back for the start of pre-season training next week.

Asked by Sportbuzzer whether Leipzig were “immune” to offers for Keita, Mintzlaff said: “Yes. And that topic is boring.

“This is only our second Bundesliga season, our squad is still the youngest and most likely also the most inexperienced.

“Sure, it would be great to start where we left off. It’s an advantage that there’s no upheaval.”

Leipzig qualified for the Champions League by finishing second to Bayern Munich last season. They are pushing ahead with ambitious plans to expand the Red Bull Arena from a capacity of 43,000 to 57,000.
