Speculation is growing by the day suggesting that the Burnley defender, Michael Keane, will be making a return to Old Trafford.

Having been deemed as not good-enough to make the grade and then subsequently sent on his way, one respected source, the Daily Mail, is reporting that Keane will be heading back to Old Trafford in a deal that will see a transfer fee of £25 million paid for the centre-back.

If, as our source suggests, the deal is done this summer, Keane will be the second player, in recent times, who Manchester United have let go and then spent a fortune bringing the player back to the club, the other being Paul Pogba.

However, we understand that Manchester United, courtesy of a sell-on clause in the deal that saw Keane leave, will receive a percentage of that fee back.

But it does make you ponder over whether the club needs to reassess those they`re willing to let go for next-to-nothing.
