Ryan Giggs’ Response To Roy Keane Valuing Him At £2bn Is Just Incredible
The former United captain had no hesitation in slapping Giggs, who is considered as one of the Premier League's best players, with a hefty £2bn price tag.
When Giggs was asked about Keane's valuation, he couldn't help but see the funny side of his former Red Devils teammate's claim.
However, the 46-year-old Welshman insisted that he understood the point that Keane was trying to make.
"He's always spoke a lot of sense, Roy [laughs]," Giggs said.
"I don't know about £2bn, 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 that we played with. I mean, what would they be worth now?

"Ruud van Nistelrooy, just an unbelievable goalscorer. What would he be worth now? Where you're just guaranteed goals every season, so I think that's the point that Roy was trying to make and he's right because it's just ridiculous now.
"And it doesn't look like it's stopping -- it looks like it's going up."
The question would be flipped on to Giggs as he was asked how much he thinks Keane would be valued at in the market.
The Wales boss said players like N'Golo Kante are "fantastic," but he added that "Roy's better than Kante."
Giggs explained: "You couldn't buy him [Keane]. You look around the league, who's like him?
"[N'Golo] Kante's obviously a fantastic player, but Roy's better than Kante.
"You know, he could do everything. When he come to United, when he signed from [Nottingham] Forest, he was an attacking midfielder, going from box to box and getting beyond the centre forward, scoring goals and then he turned into a midfielder who just controlled the tempo and, along with 'Scholesy,' part of a fantastic midfield."
