Man Utd, and Everton battling for signature of England star

Burnley are bracing themselves for a scramble among English top sides for the signature of their defender, Michael Keane.

Keane has been in fine form for Burnley this season, and several English top teams have taken note.

The defender left Manchester United for £2.5 million in the summer of 2015, but has rebuilt his career at Burnley and is set to cost potential employers at least £30 million.

Manchester United negotiated a 25% sell on clause into the deal that took him to Turf Moor , but are interested in bringing him back now. Burnley are adamant that they would offer him to United for the same amount they offer him to other suitors.

Everton are also very interested in him. After selling John Stones to Manchester City last summer, they are looking for a new young defender that would play alongside veterans Ashley Williams and Phil Jagelka.

But Mourinho wants him to become part of the English core he is trying to create at Manchester United, which already has Jese Lingard and Macus Rashford. © 2017 Frontier Theme
