RB Leipzig owner Dietrich Mateschitz has revealed the club have rejected a £66m offer for Liverpool target Naby Keita.

The Guinea international midfielder has been linked with Liverpool but Leipzig have maintained a strong stance over the 22-year-old and insisted he is not for sale.

Mateschitz has now confirmed Leipzig turned down the bid from an unnamed club for Keita, whose deal runs until 2020 and that their attitude over his future remains unchanged.

"We do not sell players who are still under contract just to make a lot of money," Mateschitz told German publication Bild.

"Recently we got a 75 million euro offer for Naby Keita. No way! He still has a contract and he will fulfil it."

"To sell him would not only be a proof of distrust for our fans, but also a wrong sign for our other players, such as Timo Werner, who is also in demand."
