Anthony Gordon was aware of Chelsea’s £45million bid this summer.
The Blues targetted the 21-year-old forward this summer and made two bids up to £45m but Everton rejected both the bids.
But Gordon believes an offer of that magnitude is not suitable for any player on this planet.
“That’s football nowadays – it’s absolutely crazy,” he said, speaking for the first time about the matter. “Personally, I don’t think any player is worth that amount of money but I’m also not going to talk myself down.
“The money in football, that’s just how it is nowadays. You’re also paying for potential all the time these days. That’s just how football goes.
“I wasn’t too focused on that because I can only control what I can control.
“I think the minute you do that (thinking he is a £60million player), there’s only one way you’re going to go.
“But because the place (Everton) is so good, it’s not a place where I’m devastated because I have to stay. That’s never been the case. I was never desperate to leave Everton. It was definitely not the case.”
