Manchester United has always been one of the busiest clubs whenever the transfer market nears. In the current scenario, although still there is a lot of time to go before the summer transfer window to re-open, Manchester United is very much in the thick of actions. And the latest developments are of the opinion that the Red Devils might be ready to bring in a central defender in the coming season.
The reports that have come out from the transfer market state that Manchester United are very much interested in bringing in yet another former youngster before the beginning of the new season. Michael Keane is the player who we are talking about, and it is believed that both the Manchester clubs are in pursuit of the young defender.
Michael Keane was sold off to Burnley when Louis Van Gaal was the manager of Manchester United with a price tag of 2.5 million pounds. And according to the current scenario, Manchester United will have to pay a fee of 25 million pounds in order to lure the English defender from Burnley. It has been reported that Manchester City, Liverpool, Everton, and Chelsea are also in the race to secure the services of Michael Keane.
Alongside this rumor regarding Michael Keane, we have also had another update which reveals that Luke Shaw has been called back by Jose Mourinho. This might be indicative of the fact that Manchester United might shift their focus from looking for a side back to a central defender which they have lacked over the last few seasons. Eric Bailly looks to have settled nicely in the center-back position, and Mourinho might now look for another strong defender to form a stable back four.
This is going to be really something that the fans might be eager to watch out for. And for all the latest updates related to Manchester United transfer rumors, keep coming back here.
