The Manchester United manager wants to bring Micheal Keane back to Old Trafford, according to reports in England
Jose Mourinho is ready to sign Burnley defender Michael Keane despite Manchester United selling the defender under 24 months ago, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror are reporting that the Red Devils are ready to make a swoop for the newly-capped England international as Mourinho looks to bolster his defensive options.
The same article states that Burnley have placed a price tag of £30m on the centre-half as Sean Dyche looks to make a substantial profit on the Clarets defender.
Burnley signed the 24-year-old defender in a £2.5m deal from Manchester United in the 2014 summer transfer window after Louis van Gaal deemed Keane surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.
