Their report makes clear that claims in the Brazilian media that Liverpool had tabled a £60m bid for Alisson were wide of the mark and that the club's recruitment team have accepted that their chances of signing him are "highly unlikely".
Roma president James Pallotta has confirmed that Real Madrid are closing in on a transfer for Chelsea and Liverpool linked goalkeeper Alisson.
Various sources explain that Roma have authorised Alisson's agent, José María Neis, to talk terms with Real Madrid. Palotta was then quoted as saying by Areanapoli.it: 'Alisson has a high market value, around €78m. In fact I was joking around with a group of guys and responded sarcastically with a reference to the popular rumours on Twitter and in the papers since I've been in Italy, ' Roma's American owner said.
"Just stupid American humour that some don't get".
He said: "I believe that it will all be resolved before the start of the World Cup, or at least that is what I hope". There are some possibilities and we are working on all of them, together with Roma, always respecting the club.
The player everyone expects to leave Stoke after their relegation from the Premier League is Shaqiri.
Real Madrid have lit up a fire behind their pursuit of the Brazilian goalkeeper and are looking to get the deal over the line before the Selecao take to the pitch for their first game in the World Cup on Sunday.
