It was in the pipes, it’s official now! As expected since yesterday, Naby Keita will leave the RB Leipzig to join Liverpool in a year. The Reds have formalized the future deal on Tuesday. The 22-year-old midfielder will land in exchange for 52 million euros plus bonuses for an undisclosed amount.
“I am very pleased that an agreement allowing me to join Liverpool next summer could be found,” said Guinean on the site of the English club. “I will take part in a very exciting project, but my commitment to the RBL remains unwavering for the entire coming season, and I have given myself every time I wear the club’s jersey. Will be the case until the final whistle of my last game. Until I join my new club, next summer I will be a remote supporter. “
