Michael Keane is on the verge of completing a £100,000-a-week return to Old Trafford from Burnley, according to reports.
Louis van Gaal allowed the former Reserve Player of the Year to move to Turf Moor for just £2million.
But he has grown into one of the best centre-backs in the country, and even earned his first England call up.
The Daily Mail report a £25million return to Old Trafford is set to be concluded and would see his £25,000-a-week wages quadrupled.
United included a 25 per cent sell-on clause, so the fee would be a little lower.
It would no doubt raise further question marks about the transfer policy at Old Trafford, as they prepare to splash out on yet another former academy player.
United broke the world transfer record to re-sign Paul Pogba in the summer, who left the club on a free in 2012.
Keane joined the club at the age of 11 and soon became a star in the lower tiers.
Jose Mourinho is keen to strengthen his backline, and the 24-year-old boyhood United fan’s return could mean the start of a defensive revolution.
Keane will be the first arrival of what could be a busy summer for United.
