RB Leipzig Manager Insists Naby Keita Will Finish The Season With The Bundesliga Side

RB Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick has said that Naby Keita is keen to remain with the German club until the end of the season.

Liverpool secured a transfer for the player last summer, but agreed that he would stay put for the entirety of the present campaign before joining them in June.

Welcome to Liverpool Football Club, Naby Keïta. Replacing Coutinho with both Van Dijk & Keïta is outstanding business. Credit where due, even more so for paying the premium to acquire his services 6 months early. A boyhood LFC fan. A complete midfielder. Give him the no.8 shirt.

Rangnick, though, has insisted that the attacker wants to stay with the club for the remainder of the season, quoted by the Express as saying:  "[Naby Keita] wants to leave us in the summer. 

"He will play with us until the end of the season. He is starting today. There isn't more to say."

"Leipzig don't play at home for another two weeks after this one and it's likely what happens here could be a big indicator of Keita's mindset," he said.

​Barcelona and Keita could do the same.  While the last few weeks have been difficult, it's a club he holds in high regard and he wants to go out in good grace.
