Roma goalkeeper Alisson admits he’s ‘very happy’ to be linked with a move to Real Madrid despite strong interest from Liverpool.

The Brazilian stopper has emerged as one of Europe’s top goalkeepers this season and Liverpool have identified the 25-year-old as their long-term number one.

Madrid are keen on replacing Keylor Navas and are interested in Premier League duo David De Gea and Thibaut Courtois.

However, Zinedine Zidane’s side have a strong interest in Alisson and the Brazilian’s talked up a move to the Bernabeu.

‘Those links massage the ego, it cannot be denied,’ Alisson told Globoesporte.

‘People get satisfaction from having recognition. I feel very happy to have that recognition.

‘It means that I am doing my job well, that they are watching me.

‘Even more so when one hears about Real Madrid.’
