Keita flattered by Reds talk

The 31-year-old has over three years left on his current deal at

Camp Nou, having been handed a contract extension earlier this

year. But reports have claimed that Liverpool, along with Russian

giants Anzhi Makhachkala, are keen to land the Mali international.

Keita admitted it was good to hear about interest from Merseyside,

but also insisted he was more than happy with life at Barcelona

where he has started more than half of their league games this

season. “Liverpool is a great club, it is fantastic to hear that

they are interested in me, but you know how I feel about

Barcelona,” he told skysports.com. “However we are in football and

nothing is an absolute, so let’s wait until the end of the season.

“I want to play more games than last season, playing regularly in a

winning team is very good for the player, but the Premier League is

very attractive and exicting for any player. “My contract runs

untill 2014, at the end of the season we will see.”
