Liverpool Star Naby Keita Confirms Barcelona, Bayern Snub

Liverpool Star Naby Keita has revealed he was approached by Barcelona and Bayern Munich but snubbed both clubs to sign for the Reds.

Last summer, Liverpool and RB Leipzig agreed a deal for Keita to join the Premier League club this summer in a transfer worth £48m.

In July, Liverpool officially signed him and unveiled the Guinea international who has now made his debut for the club already.

And Keita has now revealed he rejected a move to La Liga Champions Barcelona and Bundesliga Champions Bayern to end up at Anfield.

"It's true to say that there were other teams involved like the ones you mentioned," Keita said via the Guardian when speaking of interest from the La Liga and Bundesliga giants.

"But a big part of my decision was the role of the coach.

"We had good conversations. The words he spoke to me about this project really convinced me.

"I could see how the club was developing andI spoke at length with Sadio [Mane].

"Sadio is like a brother to me. We had nine months together at Salzburg and built up a good rapport.

"We have been great friends since that time. He told me what a great club this was and how the team was progressing and had great potential."

Naby Keita is one of four players Liverpool have signed this summer which include Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Goalkeeper Alisson.
