Jose Mourinho Keen On Former Manchester United Defender Michael Keane

Reports have emerged claiming that Jose Mourinho is believed to be very keen on Burnley defender Michael Keane.

Manchester United have been loosely linked with the highly-rated centre-back in recent times but according to the Daily Mirror, their interest is serious.

It is understood that United have joined the ever-increasing queue of clubs who are lining up for the 24-year-old, who departed Old Trafford for Turf Moor three years ago.

Everton are reportedly leading the race for two-time England international Keane but the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are also in pursuit.

The Mirror report suggests that: “United are keen despite allowing the ex-trainee to leave as it is believed there were sell-on clauses in the deal with Burnley which could make it work.

“Mourinho is keen to strengthen his defence this summer and wants to sign a top centre-half.”
