Former Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs agrees with Roy Keane that the transfer market is now ridiculous.
Keane spoke out against “mind-boggling” transfer fees for “average” players, in his typical understated style.
However, Giggs agrees with Keane that the market has got out of control, while also joking that he agreed with Keane’s estimation that he would be worth £2bn in today’s market.
“He’s always spoken a lot of sense has Roy,” said Giggs.
“I don’t know about £2 billion but I think Roy’s point was that now you’re seeing average players go for massive sums.
“You look back at some of the players we played with – what would they be worth now? Ruud van Nistelrooy, unbelievable goalscorer, you’re just guaranteed goals every season.
“I think that was the point Roy was trying to make and he’s right because it’s just ridiculous. It doesn’t look like stopping, just going up.”
