Manchester United fans won’t feel too disheartened after last night’s performance as their side managed to keep things tight against one of the world’s best sides.
Although, the Red Devils are going to need all the firepower they can possible get in return leg at the Nou Camp.
Interestingly, it appears as if one of Manchester United’s current attackers could attract quite a healthy fee if he was to be sold, as according to CIES (via Daily Mail), Romelu Lukaku is valued at £137 million.
Manchester United fans will be confused as to why the Belgium international is worth so much after a very inconsistent season. Lukaku’s touch has been dreadful at times this season and he’s squandered a number of chances for the Red Devils, so it comes as some surprise to see him valued at that price.
If Lukaku’s 15 goals and four assists give him a value of £137 million then Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford must be worth at least double his price. It’s safe to say that no club would be willing to pay that kind of price for the forward as he’s done very little to suggest he can attract such a fee.
United originally paid £75 million (as per BBC) to sign the forward but even that amount of money looks like too much when you consider what he’s done for the Red Devils so far. Therefore, it seems crazy that he’s reportedly almost doubled his original fee as it should be the other way round, with his value decreasing.
Even if he scores a healthy amount of goals from here on in and helps United secure a top four spot and silverware in the Champions League, he still wouldn’t be deserved of such a high value.
