Rangnick made the claim while stressing that his club have no intention of selling Keita despite Liverpool having strong interesting in him.

"The chance [of Keita leaving] is "null", the manager said".

Leipzig's stance - both publicly and privately - has been that Keita is not for sale at any price this summer as the club embark on the Champions League for the first time in their history.

Following this latest development in the Naby Keïta transfer saga, Rangnick and Leipzig remain adamant the the 22-year-old will not be sold this window, with his release clause not coming into effect until summer 2018. "They will finish their transfer activities and that is okay for me".
