Liverpool’s bid, which is 70m euros, would overtake the current record for a keeper – 53m euros paid by Juventus to Parma for Gianluigi Buffon in 2001.

The Premier League record for a keeper is the 40m euros Manchester City paid Benfica for Ederson in June 2017.

The pitch invasion took place early in the second half of France’s 4-2 victory, with one protester seen embracing Les Bleus forward Kylian Mbappe while another was wrestled to the ground by Croatia’s Dejan Lovren.

Notorious for their imaginative costumes and explosive demonstrations, Pussy Riot’s members are staunch critics of Russian president Vladimir Putin, calling for judicial, educational and cultural reforms in the country.

The group’s official Twitter account confirmed the 15-day administrative arrest of Veronica Nikulshina, Olga Kurachova, Pyotr Verzilov and Olga Pakhtusova.

The protesters, who dressed in Russian police uniforms to invade the pitch at Luzhniki Stadium, were found to have violated the rules of conduct of spectators during the holding of official sports events and also wearing a police uniform without authorization.
