Liel Abada’s price tag varies between £12m and £20m according to the top reporters at the Daily Record.

At the age of 21 the winger has just experienced his first Champions League campaign and is breaking into the full Israeli international squad.

Having taken the move from Israel to Scotland in his stride it is unlikely that Abada will require much settling in time when he eventually moves on from Celtic.

Achieving maximum value on the pitch is as important as selling for top dollar, with a contract running until May 2026 Celtic hold most of the cards with no suggestion that the winger could start agitating for a move.

Having Abada on board for next season would be a healthy outcome for Celtic, young wingers that score double figure goals and deliver similar numbers of assists aren’t easy to recruit.

Putting their question to the Saturday Jury the Record reports:

Liel Abada is a Southampton target but Celtic don’t want to sell. What kind of offer do you think could tempt the Hoops?

MICHAEL GANNON: There’s no need to sell Abada right now but when the time comes he could make Celtic a huge stack of dosh. At 21 and with proven end product, there’s no reason he couldn’t command £20m plus when the time comes.

DAVID McCARTHY: Celtic have him on a deal until 2026, so hold all the aces here. The youngster has been superb for them and they’d surely be looking somewhere north of £15m for him.

FRASER WILSON: If Celtic are serious about keeping the Israeli then it would take something pretty ridiculous to change their mind. Upwards of £12m.

Israeli side Petah Tikva are likely to have a sell on slice of any fee above the £3.5m that they sold Abada for in July 2021.

    Is that the same experts who predicted Sevco would win the league last year and this year , buffoons the lot of them ..really can’t wait until these rags disappear forever .
    Then we can rightly dismiss their lies and propaganda ( reports ) from purely Celtic supporters web pages / blogs / fanzines etc .. right Celtic NewsNow ?

      Stop trying to sell Celtic FC players and concentrate on trying to sell copies of your own newspaper ,the Daily Record …. Then again ,that’s like trying to swim the Atlantic Ocean with a sheepskin coat on …

  • Mick Lyons says:

    Stop trying to sell CELTIC players concentrate on the other side of glasgow, there must be players there worth millions ? ?

  • John says:

    What confuses me is there analysis of Juranovic’s value. 17 million Mc Fadden said ‘just because’ seemed to be his reason. So a guy who has been lauded across the globe as one of the players of the World Cup, with CL experience an who is just reaching his peak years is worth 1 million more than a Rangers teenager? 5 million less than Bassey who has much less experience or talent. Not to mention that the player has signed a 5 year contract. Bidding starts at 25 surely? Bidding for Abada 22 million. Why will Celtic struggle to keep Postecoglu due to the lure of the PL but Rangers can attract managers who are the target of PL clubs. Which side has won the league 10 out of the last 11 years? Maybe there is an agenda with the pundits? I couldn’t possibly say?

    we want to keep all our good players but celtic now are set up as a selling club model so expect players to stay for 2/3 seasons then sold.Thats the only way at present we have unless we start getting into the champions leauge group stages every year and progress thats the big if.
