Man Utd to waive Keane sell-on fee as Burnley star eyes Old Trafford return


Michael Keane would jump at the chance to return to Manchester United, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror suggests that the Burnley defender is keen on moving back to Old Trafford three years after initially joining the Clarets on loan.

It is understood that United would be willing to waive the 25% sell-on clause they had inserted in Keane’s Burnley contact when he signed permanently for £2.5million in the summer of 2015.

Burnley value the 24-year-old at more than £20m after a successful season in the Premier League which has seen him emerge as an England hopeful, having played twice for the Three Lions this year.

Keane is contracted with Burnley until 2018 and has thus far resisted the Lancashire club’s attempts to tie him down to a new bumper deal

Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are all interested in Keane who is looking to leave Turf Moor this summer but will not depart if he doesn’t get the desired move.
