Manchester United closing in on first summer signing

Manchester United are set to sign their first player this summer. The Red Devils are reportedly very close to re-signing Burnley defender Michael Keane.

According to the British media, United are close to completing the signing of the defender for a fee of £25 million. Which is a massive increase on the £2.5 million they sold him in the summer of 2015.

This would be the second time in two summers that the Red Devils would be buying back a player they sold for peanuts. They signed Paul Pogba back from Juventus for a world record fee, after losing him to the Italians for nothing in 2012.

Michael Keane has been a very important player for Burnley this season, but the club is set to allow him to leave.
The Clarets coach Sean Dyche has admitted that they would not stand in the way of the England man if he wants to move. According to him, they are a club that players do outgrow and they are not going to stand in the way of any player that wants to go to a bigger club.

If Keane signs for United, it would be a major blow to Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal who were also very keen on signing him. © 2017 Frontier Theme
