Man Utd interested in Keane

Sky Sports logo Sky Sports 18/5/2017

Manchester United are interested in re-signing Burnley defender Michael Keane, Sky sources understand. 

Keane, 24, left United to join Burnley permanently in 2015 for £2m, four years after he signed a professional contract at Old Trafford.

United are understood to have a 25 per cent sell-on clause standing from that deal, meaning they would be due a quarter of any fee paid to re-sign Keane back.

It is understood no talks over a deal have taken place between any of the parties involved as yet.

Everton, Tottenham and Liverpool are all believed to be interested in Keane, who has just one year left on his contract - which could prompt Burnley to cash in this summer.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman made clear his admiration for the defender in January though another source told Sky Sports News HQ Keane is not in Tottenham's sights.

Keane won his first England cap last autumn in the World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia.
