Mourinho paid a big price to bring back former Manchester United youngster Paul Pogba last summer, breaking the world-record transfer fee in doing so, and could be set for a similar move this time around.
According to reports from The Mirror, the Red Devils boss is considering a whopping £30m move for United academy graduate and now Burnley defender, Michael Keane.
Whilst the fee is nowhere near that forked out to bring Pogba back to the club, it remains an embarrassment after Mourinho’s predecessor made the mistake of selling Keane for £2.5m to the Clarets in 2015.
Since Sean Dyche’s side returned to the Premier League this season, the centre-half has been outstanding and has earned his first recognition at international level, making his England debut under Gareth Southgate against Germany in Dortmund.
Whilst Mourinho is keen to bolster his defence, there may well be better options out there, especially at a better price than that mooted by The Mirror.
