Man United will have to spend big for Burnley’s Keane

Manchester United have been warned that they will have to spend big if they want to land Burnley defender Michael Keane this summer.

Keane has been a big success story for Burnley this season, with a host of clubs keeping track of the £25million-rated centre-half.

However, the 24-year-old has just 12 months remaining on his contract at Turf Moor and is reportedly refusing to sign an extension.

Keane has been linked with a return to Old Trafford after he left United to join Burnley in a £2m move two-and-a-half years ago.

But Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists the club are under no financial pressure to cash-in on one of their prize assets.

He said: “We’re in a great position, if that came around. We’re in a stronger position now.

“That’s where the club has changed. It would have to be appropriate for all parties, and all parties are in the loop.

“I’m open and honest with the players. We’ll look at it and speak to the relevant people. If it doesn’t fit, crack on.”
