Man City enter chase for Michael Keane

Michael Keane news

City desperate to sign Keane?

Premier League giants Manchester City are looking at the prospect of signing Burnley defender Michael Keane this month.

The 24-year-old, who is also on the radar of both Leicester City and Everton, has been in top form for the Clarets, who hold an exceptional record on home turf.

According to The Sun, Pep Guardiola has stepped up the club's pursuit for the former Manchester City man following their defensive shambles in recent weeks.

The Catalan tactician saw his side lose out to Everton by an embarrassing 4-0 scoreline last weekend whilst they could not keep hold of a two-nil lead against Tottenham Hotspur - a game which eventually ended 2-2.

Sean Dyche's side have been reluctant to lose Keane midway through the campaign, but it is said that a fee of around £20m could be too good to refuse for the Lancashire outfit.

Keane arrived at Turf Moor from Manchester United for a mere £2.5m in the winter of 2015.
