Keane, who made the permanent switch to Turf Moor from Manchester United in 2015, has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the Premier League this season and a host of clubs are vying for the defender.
Hailing the Portuguese superstar as "a genius" as he gave his verdict on his latest hat-trick that fired Real Madrid to a Champions League quarter-final win against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night, Keane didn't hold back as he poured praise on the 32-year-old forward.
He said: "The guy is a genius - there is no getting away from it".

Keane played in a three-man defence for England last month and Conte was reportedly impressed.
