Bundesliga: Media: FC Bayern was about to sign a contract with Naby Keita

FC Bayern Munich was apparently already in promising talks with Naby Keita of RB Leipzig before the 22-year-old signed with FC Liverpool for the summer of 2018.

As the kicker reports, the deal ultimately failed because the German record holder was not prepared to pay the transfer fee this summer, unlike the Reds.Liverpool, on the other hand, did not hesitate and transferred 70 million euros instead of the fixed sum of 55 million.

The main reason for Bavaria to refrain from a transfer is therefore above all the risk that Keita could be seriously injured between the conclusion of the contract and the actual transfer.The kicker also reports that Bayern Keita could have been cheaper: when the midfielder from Guinea played for Salzburg, he was offered to the FCB.

Sadio Mane, Jadon Sancho and Gabriel Jesus are also said to have been offered to the 27 times German master.All three, however, eventually changed to another club.Mane to Liverpool FC, Sancho to Borussia Dortmund and Jesus to Manchester City.
