Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock says that Everton’s Brazilian forward Richarlison could be worth £90m, double what the media claim the Blues paid for him in the summer.
The former Sheffield United (among others) boss was speaking ahead of his side’s visit to Goodison Park this weekend to take on the Blues, and after RIcharlison had scored another international goal during this week’s break, with many online betting sites tipping him to score even more.
With many Evertonians already believing that whatever the media claim the Blues paid of the Brazilian was a good deal, it will come as a welcome bit of news to hear that others in the game agree.
He said, “You look at stats and they’re the hardest working side in the Premier League at the moment.
“Look at Richarlison up front he’s probably worth double that £45million.
“Sigurdsson has had two week’s holiday whereas Aron [Gunnarsson, who was selected for international duty with Iceland last week while Gylfi was injured] has been all over the world.”
“Jagielka speaks very highly of the whole club so there’s no reason why they can’t push into the top five over the next few years.”
Warnock brings his side to Goodison Park knowing that victory will be hard to come by and that the odds are stacked against them given the history of this fixture.

Warnock knows his position at Cardiff is under threat, too, with his Chairman telling him who has called to tell him to get a different boss in!
“Vincent tells me every time I see him, how many agents and managers are ringing him up telling him to sack me and bring this or that manager in,” Warnock added.
“They’re all great managers and when I do eventually leave it will be interesting to see how the club moves forward.
“Owners take a lot of influence from outside information.
“When things aren’t going well they tend to listen more than they would do normally.
“It’s quite easy to lose faith and to think that the grass on the other side is greener.
“We all know that we’re going to get the sack at some stage.
“I don’t think the LMA have really got any input into that.
“Owners just do what they want. They’re not really bothered about the LMA.
“We all know that is the industry. All of the managers down the bottom end know that it could be around the corner.”
