Manchester United are set for a massive payday if Burnley defender Michael Keane is sold according to reports.
Keane left the Red Devils in 2014 for Burnley, and has seen his stock rise ever since with impressive displays for the Clarets, which has also seen earn an England call-up.
His exploits have not gone unnoticed, however, as several Premier League clubs have shown interest in luring him away from Turf Moor, with Chelsea and Leicester in front of the queue.
According to the reports, United will earn a sizeable financial boost if the centre-back leaves Burnley, as It is understood the Red Devils have an agreement entitling them to as much as 20 percent of the profit on Keane’s next transfer.
The 23-year old was sold by United in a £2.5million deal, while Burnley rejected an £11m bid for Leicester in the summer.
The defender is in the final 18 months of his contract, meaning the newly-promoted Premier League side are likely to sell their prized-asset in one of the next two transfer windows to avoid the possibiity of him leaving on Bosman in 2018.
Burnley are trying to tie Keane down to a new five-year contract but know it will be extremely difficult to agree fresh terms with the youngster given the growing interest in the player.
