Burnley and England International Michael Keane is set to leave Turf Moor at the end of the season, according to Skysports.com.
Keane, 24, has been highly rated since leaving Manchester United in 2014 when Louis Van Gaal sold him to Burnley after an initial loan deal due to the player not gaining enough first team football. The defender was signed on a permanent deal by Sean Dyche in the January transfer market and has been a solid and consistent performer ever since. Keane was called up previously for the World Cup Qualifiers against Slovenia and Malta by England manager Gareth Southgate and then made his full debut in the 1-0 friendly loss to Germany, where he looked more than comfortable at the heart of the defence.
Now with one year remaining on his contract, Keane is looking to move on from Burnley and there are a host of clubs interested in the 24 year old England international. London clubs Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have been thought to be interested as well as Liverpool, Everton and Keane’s former club, Manchester United.
Last summer, former Leicester City boss, Claudio Ranieri failed in an attempt to bring the centre back to the King Power Stadium, when a £20 million bid was rejected, according to reports.
Chelsea have announced that former England captain, John Terry will be leaving the club at the end of the season which could see Conte make a move for Keane this summer. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool manager is in need of a central defender and it seems as though he will make a move for the highly rated defender too.
Sources close to Keane have reported that the 24 year old would like to join his former employees, Manchester United, and Jose Mourinho has lavished praise on the defender this season which could see a return for Keane to the Theatre of Dreams.
Burnley will look to sell the central defender for as much as £30 million this summer after signing the player for £2.5 million from Manchester United in 2015.
