Roy Keane Gave His Former Man Utd Teammates Modern Price Tags, And They're Suitably Ridiculous

Hmm. Right

Roy Keane has placed some dizzying modern-day price tags on his former Manchester United teammates, and you really can't argue with his estimates – but only because he's a very aggressive and intimidating man.

Just this summer we've seen the transfer record broken twice, with Neymar's £198 million move to PSG and Ousmane Dembele's £135.5 million switch, alongside a host of other silly money transfers as well.

And when asked by the Irish Times about the current market, Roy Keane didn't hold back.

"It's mind-boggling, the figures that are out there — especially for the average players. If ever there was a time to be a professional player it's now. Average players are going for £35 million. My goodness.

"I don't really analyse it too much, but that's the market place at the moment. There aren't many top players out there. The really big players are going for big money and it's filtering down now.

"When average players are going for £30-40 million, it does make you scratch your head. But if the clubs are prepared to pay that, then it's not the players' fault."

And then, when asked about how much his legendary Manchester United teammates of yore would go for in the current market, Keane was suitably realistic.

"Ruud would certainly be worth in the market now probably a billion," Keane said.

"David Beckham? A billion.

"Ryan Giggs? Two billion."

And then Keane was asked about his own value, to which he replied, "£3.75 million, I think" – a reference to the record he broke way back in 1993.

What a steal. We'll leave the others if you don't mind though, Roy.
