RB Leipzig warn Liverpool that Naby Keita not for sale at any price - source
From ESPN - July 17, 2017

RB Leipzig have told Liverpool that Naby Keita is not for sale at any price after turning down a 68 million bid last week, a source has told ESPN FC.

Earlier this summer, German media had quoted an unofficial price tag of 80m (70m) for Keita and Liverpool are reported to be planning to meet that valuation, but Leipzig insist that there is "no figure" that could sway their minds on the 22-year-old Guinea international.

"We will not enter into negotiations at all," a club source told ESPN FC. "A decision has been made that none of our key players will be sold and we are sticking to it."

RB sporting director Ralf Rangnick is determined that Leipzig give a good account of themselves in the Champions League and challenge Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga in the coming season.
