But the German goalkeeper was prone to mistakes last season and reports suggested Klopp was on the hunt for a new No1 with Alisson top of the list.

Instead, he looks set for the Santiago Bernabeu with new Real boss Julen Lopetegui.

Costa Rica’s Keylor Navas has been in goal for the European champions but Real are constantly linked with replacements.

Manchester United’s David de Gea has been a long-term target for Real.

So the possibility of Alisson, 25, moving from Rome to the Spanish capital will also come as a relief to the Old Trafford hierarchy.
