Manchester United are eyeing up a reunion with Burnley defender Michael Keane, two years after he left Old Trafford, according to The Daily Mail.
The 24-year-old has started all 30 of the Clarets’ Premier League matches this season, and earned his England debut last week in the 1-0 defeat against Germany in Dortmund.
The centre-back has been an integral reason why Sean Dyche’s men are 13th in the top-flight table and eight points clear of the bottom three, with his recurrent impressive displays at the heart of Burnley’s back four attracting many suitors.
And one of those is reportedly Jose Mourinho’s United, who are looking to do a deal with the Lancashire outfit two years after selling Keane to them for just £2.5 million.
However, the Red Devils may have to fork out £25 million to re-sign the 24-year-old, although the Premier League giants haven’t been afraid of paying big money to bring players back to Old Trafford, having spent £89 million on Paul Pogba last summer.
Nonetheless, Mourinho will have to fend off interest from both Liverpool and Everton if he is to land the centre-back, whose excellent displays for Gareth Southgate’s England over the international break have further outlined his undoubted potential.
Dyche’s Burnley host Tottenham this afternoon hoping to take another step closer to Premier League safety, while Mourinho’s United entertain West Brom at Old Trafford hoping to keep the pressure on the top four.
