Rangnick's comments follow from Liverpool's unsuccessful attempts to sign Keita, and he has insisted the player will remain at the club this upcoming season.

Liverpool are expected to return for Keita next summer when a release clause of around the €50m mark will be active in the midfielder's contract.

Rangnick added: "I can assure you that Naby is playing with us this season".

However, RB Leipzig are still hoping to convince Keita to sign a new contract which would remove the clause.

Keita's current deal with Leipzig runs until June 2020. "All other scenarios also depend on how we do this season, how Naby plays himself and so on".

"We do not want to prove to anyone that we can create market value [by selling players], we want to be successful in sport".

Many fans and media even speculated that the separation with Summer was caused due to his inclination towards alcohol. Casey's representatives have confirmed the news from People about the couple's divorce.

Across the Bundesliga or within runners-up Leipzig's squad, Keita doesn't top a lot of rankings.

The Guinea global made 32 total appearances across all competitions and played an instrumental role in helping Ralph Hasenhuttl's side to finish second behind by Bayern Munich in their first ever season in the German top-flight. Dembele recorded 103 take-ons to Keita's 83.

"It's 100 percent that Naby will play this year at Leipzig".

Liverpool have agreed terms with the player, but at the moment Leipzig have batted away all their offers.

The Guinea global was crucial to the fledgling club finishing second in their maiden Bundesliga season in 2016/17 and reaching the Champions League eight years after their formation.
