Man United target’s asking price increased

Burnley are set to increase their asking price for Michael Keane due to Manchester United’s clause in defender’s contract.

The England international is expected to leave Burnley and his former club United are keeping tabs on the defender. The 24 year old left Old Trafford to join Burnley in 2 million pounds deal in 2015 with United insisting on a clause that entitles them to 25% of any sell-on fee. The Clarets value the defender at 25 million pounds meaning the Red Devils would only have to pay 18.75 million pounds.

Reports suggest that Burnley are ready to demand at least 30 million pounds in order to regain his price tag. The Red Devils are yet to make a move for Keane who has attracted interest from Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton. United boss Jose Mourinho will boost his defence having publicly criticised Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, while Marcos Rojo will start next campaign on the sidelines. .
