KEANE: PS2b GIGGSY'S A REAL SNIP.
Byline: CHRIS BEECH
ROY KEANE insists former team-mate Ryan Giggs would be worth PS2billion in today's "mind-boggling" transfer market.
The Republic of Ireland No.2 admits he's stunned by some of the figures paid out this summer - with PSG paying a staggering PS200million for Neymar and preparing to invest heavily once again in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe.
But it is the prices paid for players lower down the food chain that have surprised Man United legend Keane the most.
He said: "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 going for PS35m - my goodness."
Keane starred in Alex Ferguson's all-conquering United side alongside players such as Peter Schmeichel, Jaap Stam, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Asked what van Nistelrooy would cost now, Keane smiled and said: "Ruud would certainly be worth, in the market now, probably a billion.
"David Beckham? A billion. Ryan Giggs? Two billion."
And when he was asked how much he himself might cost nowadays, Keane added: "PS3.75m I think."
