Former Manchester United player Roy Keane believes Arsenal overpaid for Declan Rice.
The United legend claims that, while rice is good, he is not worth the over £100 million price tag. Rice has been a top target for Arsenal since the beginning of last season.
However, the club did not make an official approach for Rice until their title hopes were dashed due to a lack of squad depth.
Roy Keane speaking on ITV said, via Metro:
‘He’s obviously going to be surrounded by better players, different demands if he’s going to play a little bit higher up the pitch.’
‘I think he definitely has that quality in terms of adding more goals, he’s obviously got that physical strength, he can get in the box.’
‘They’ve obviously paid way too much for him, he’s certainly not worth over £100 million. We can say that about lots of players, I agree. But again, we’ll find out in the next year or two how good Declan is.’
