According to new reports in the media, Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita could return to the Bundesliga at the end of the season, with RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund said to be monitoring his situation.
The African midfielder has been linked with a move away from Anfield, along with stars such as Roberto Firmino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Now though, Journalist Christian Falk has revealed that he enquired about Keita’a future through Sadio Mane, given that the two players have the same management.
With the Bundesliga being spoken of as a likely destination, Falk said that RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund are keeping tabs on Keita’s situation.
“I met Sadio Mané the other week and asked him directly about Naby Keïta, “Falk wrote for CaughtOffside, as per The Boot Room.
“He told me the Bundesliga is making itself so small and it’s such a great league.
“He’s very sure that, in the next few years, we’re going to see plenty of Premier League stars in the German top-flight.
“I know, because he has the same management and is a friend of Keïta, so they’re still in contact. I asked Mané if he knew more and he told me ‘I will tell you when there is news.”
“I think he knows something. I think Leipzig are ahead at the moment. Dortmund are not so concrete at the moment but they do have him on their shortlist in the ongoing search for a potential Jude Bellingham replacement.”
