'Not paying £100m': Gary Neville claims 23-year-old Liverpool player should be worth about £80m right now

Gary Neville has insisted that Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold isn’t worth £100m.

Speaking on an Instagram Live video, Neville has claimed that instead, the Liverpool man is worth £80m

“Trent is worth – you’re probably not paying £100 million for a full-back, but you’re paying £80 million for Trent aren’t you,” said the pundit.

You could offer all the riches in the known world Gary, you still wouldn’t be able to take Trent away from Liverpool.

Alexander-Arnold going absolutely nowhere

How much Alexander-Arnold is worth is a completely moot point. There’s simply no way that the Scouser is leaving Liverpool any time soon.

At twenty-three, he’s already arguably the best right-back in world football. As he matures and his game develops further, there’s no limit to how good he could be.

Those kind of qualities will surely attract suitors at some point. But while Liverpool are still right at the top of European football they don’t need to worry about that.

Even if Trent wasn’t a boyhood Liverpool fan, there’s surely no place he’d rather be at this moment in time.

The team is built perfectly around him. He has the freedom to fully show off his array of skills whilst winning major trophies.

As his time with England has shown, there’s no guarantee that he would be utilised in the same way under a different manager. Jurgen Klopp gets the very best out of him, he could easily sacrifice that by moving on, and he knows that.

At this point, the expectation is that Trent will one day become Liverpool captain. In Jordan Henderson and James Milner, he has had the perfect grounding to know what the role demands.

When the time comes, it feels natural that the armband should pass to ‘the Scouser in the team.’ So you can keep your £80m Gary, our number 66 is in it for the long-haul.
