Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker admits transfer links with Real Madrid “massage the ego”.
The Brazil stopper has long been linked with Liverpool, but now the 25-year-old is also attracting interest from Europe’s biggest clubs.
PSG are said to have been monitoring his situation while Napoli are also reported to be very keen.
But it is the rumours of interest from Real Madrid that most flatter the goalkeeper.
Speaking to Globoesporte, he said: “Those links massage the ego, it cannot be denied.
“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.”
