Naby Keita has been one of the stars of the last season for his club Red Bull Leipzig, playing a pivotal role in bolstering their attack and helping them to finish as the Runner-ups in the German Bundesliga. His pace and prowess have attracted the attention of a number of clubs from all over Europe including the likes of Manchester City, Inter Milan and Liverpool.
The Guinean international has scored eight goals in 32 appearances for his club in the last term, making it one of the most successful ones for the German outfit. He also went on to provide a total of eight assists throughout the season for his teammates, providing them with the opportunity to score goals to keep his side in the advantage.
Manchester City, who did not have a great season in the last term and finished with no silverware in their kitty, are looking very much determined to start the new season on a strong note and have been looking to make a number of changes in the side for the next season. They have already shown the door to a number of veteran players in their side, who were playing for quite a few seasons in their line-up and have already brought in some of the finest players in the summer to be a part of the squad.
The Citizens have already roped in a brilliant midfielder in the form of Bernardo Silva from the French Ligue 1 champions AS Monaco as their first signing of the summer and are looking forward to pairing him with Keita to give an extra edge to their midfield for the next term. It goes without saying that the 22-year-old will be a good inclusion to the roster for the former Premier League champions, as they look forward to making a move for regaining the title in the new season.
The current man in charge, Pep Guardiola, is looking forward to a season of success both in the Premier League as well as European competitions so as to make amends for the missed opportunities that saw him face a fairly unsuccessful season by his terms in his first outing as the City manager. The signing of Keita can be a big boost for him and his side, as it can give them more attacking options throughout the season, thus helping them to field a strong team for the next term.
However, Leipzig are not willing to let go of their prized possession and have already rejected a bid of £57 million from Liverpool.
