24-year-old looks set to join Manchester United – report

Manchester United are said to be serious about bringing Michael Keane back to the club three years after he left Old Trafford.

The 6’3″ defender left Manchester United on a permanent deal in 2014 after loan spells at Leicester City, Derby and Blackburn. He only played five competitive games for Manchester United over the space of four senior years at the club and had to find his opportunities elsewhere. But after moving to Burnley he made a huge impact at the club and became a stalwart of the defence, playing whenever fit.

His form has apparently taken the eye of Jose Mourinho who is now keen to bring the player back to Old Trafford.

British media outlet, The Metro, reports:

The England defender looks set to rejoin Manchester United during the summer, with his former club preparing a £25million move.

Keane has played 108 times for Burnley and scored seven goals over three seasons. This form has also got him into the England side where he has now made two appearances since his debut earlier in 2017.

TFF has said before that we aren’t sure this is a player who will noticeably improve the current team Manchester united have. He’s a good all-rounder with two decent feet and real aerial presence. He also threatens the opposition goal as his seven goals 100 appearances have proven.

But is he really that much better than Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo?

TFF thinks that Manchester United should be looking for a ballplaying centre back to complement the brilliance of hard man Eric Bailly.

Manchester United fans – is he worth the money?
