Michael Keane, the former Manchester United defender, has been delivering an excellent season of football and has hence been attracting major attention from other clubs and pundits in the footballing world.
Michael Keane was sold by Louis van Gaal to Burnley for only £2 million but has no regrets of leaving the club as he said, “I ended up signing permanently and I was really happy to do that because I’ve loved it ever since.
“I do feel sometimes that things could have been different [at United] but I don’t regret anything because the move has definitely been the best thing for me.” while speaking to The Guardian.
According to pundit, expert and former Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, Jose Mourinho should look to bring back Micheal Keane to the Theatre of Dreams as he believes the defender has what it needs to become “a huge star”.
The young 24 year old centre half left United two seasons back on loan before finally joining Sean Dyches’ men on a permanent basis. The player has earned himself an England call up earlier this term while becoming a target for Chelsea and Everton in the summer.
Rio Ferdinand compared Keane to Pogba as a youngster filled with potential who can shine at Manchester United after having worked with both individuals during their young playing days.
As reported by The Mirror , Ferdinand spoke about Keane saying, “I think the moment he found out he was going to leave Manchester United – every kid’s dream in that area is to play for Manchester United – so to leave the club was a huge wrench for him.
“But it allowed him to go and spread his wings and bloom really and become the player he is now. At Manchester United he wasn’t afforded that opportunity, for whatever reason.”
Keane is part of a solid Burnley defense sitting 12th in the table and maintaining impeccable home form.
“He is one of the cleanest passers through the lines, from the back to the No.10 position – he is comfortable and confident on the ball and at the top end of the game, that is worth a huge amount.”, Ferdinand concluded about the young hot English prospect.
