Reports from Spain claim that Real Madrid are not really interested in Alisson but are using him to put pressure on David De Gea to force a move from Manchester United.
Liverpool are supposedly facing competition from Real Madrid and Chelsea to sign AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson this summer.
The Brazilian was fantastic for the Calcio A side last season and his performances both domestically and in Europe have led to widespread interest.
However, with Chelsea buoyed by the news that Thibaut Courtois is planning on returning to contract talks, the Blues are not looking for a goalkeeper at this point. And if Don Balon are to be trusted, they usually aren’t, Liverpool could be the only other side majorly interested in Alisson.
Don Balon claim that Real Madrid are up to their media shenanigans again and are using their well-published interest in Alisson to spook David De Gea into engineering a move from Manchester United to the Spanish capital this summer.
The Spaniard, however, has spoken out on his future and he seems very relaxed on what the future holds for him.
“Usually I’m always calm, the important thing now is to start the World Cup on June 15th,” De Gea said.
“Is the most important thing. Do well in Russia, have a good role and do things in the best possible way. Future? I’m happy where I am, happy. Now, very focused on the national team.”
In a perfect world, David De Gea would move to Real Madrid, leaving them without a top goalkeeper while Liverpool went on to buy Alisson.
The Brazil no.1 will cost in the region of £79 million, a fee that will prove to be a bargain if the Reds go on to win silverware next season.
