Man United have somewhat had an impenetrable defense and can be adjudged to have the second best defense in the Premier League this season. The Red Devils have conceded 29 goals in the League, second to Tottenham’s 24.
However, Mourinho is not satisfied with the show-off and defensive tenacity of some of his star and so, he has been tipped to reinforce his otherwise strong defense in the summer.
According to report by the Daily Star, Man United are close to sealing a deal for their former player and centre-back Michael Keane.
Keane was offloaded by Dutch tactician Luis Van Gaal for £2million to the Turf Moore Landlords but he has developed into one of the finest defensive stalwarts in the League, and has even earned a call up to the Three Lions squad.
Jose Mourinho transfer targets have been revealed but Keane appears to be the latest player topping his wishlist. The report claims Burnley have tagged the 24-year-old with £25million, which United are willing to offer, but the England international want assurance of game time before he would make the move.
This is an era of players return to Old Trafford, Pogba returned after a sojourn with Juventus in the Italian League and Keane would be the second player to return if a deal pulls through for him.
Mourinho is believed to be in the want of revamping his team, with Chris Smalling’s recent public criticism of him, Keane could be come in as his replacement.
