As part of their charm offensive, Real offered Elliott the chance to meet with captain Sergio Ramos - an invitation he declined. A Reds fan, Elliott had no interest in meeting the defender after his clash with Mohamed Salah in the 2018 Champions League final.
"Yes it's true. I refused because of what he (Ramos) did to Mo (Salah)," Elliott told the Athletic.
"As a small child, I remember the buzz of walking up the stairs inside Anfield's stands, watching the lights and players warm up - what a sight. My heroes were Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez. I loved watching them. My father was a big fan of Fernando Torres and we had a big poster of him in the house."
