Ryan Giggs Smiles At Roy Keane Two Million Evaluation

Ryan Giggs had recently been estimated by former Manchester united teammate Roy Keane to be worth two billion in today's transfer market but the Wales international has laughed off the idea.

Keane made the statement because of the price inflation on average players and comparing them with the exceptional players of his time, he couldn't help but estimate ten figure sums.

"He's always spoken a lot of sense has Roy," Giggs said at the 2017 FAW McDonald's Community Awards ahead of the Wales-Austria World Cup qualifier in Cardiff.

"I don't know about two 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 was an unbelievable goalscorer and guaranteed goals every season.

"I think that was the point Roy was trying to make and he's right because it's just ridiculous. And it doesn't look like stopping, it's just going up."

Roy Keane joined Manchester United from Nottingham Forest with £3.75m, which he replied will still be his worth in the market right now but Giggs replied: "You couldn't buy him because you look around the league and who is like him?

"[N'Golo] Kante is a fantastic player but Roy is better. He could do everything.
"When he came to United he was an attacking midfielder going from box-to-box, getting beyond the centre-forward and scoring goals.

"Then he turned into a midfielder who controlled the tempo and with [Paul Scholes] was part of a fantastic midfield."

Giggs believe that Jose Mourinho has sufficiently fortified Manchester United for the premier league challenge this season after adding Lindelof, Matic and lukaku to the squad.

"Jose's got the players in he wanted," Giggs said. "He knows Matic and Lukaku and they've started well.

"Lindelof has taken more time to settle and that can happen. It happened with Jaap Stam a long time ago and look what sort of player he turned out to be.

"Also players who under-achieved last year - Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan - have started well and there's real solidity and strength in depth there.

"They are going to need that with the Champions League coming up, but I think it's between them and City for the title."
