The centre-back has been rumoured to be on the move for some months now, with a move to United reported in the tabloids, despite being let go from Old Trafford earlier in his career.
In the end, Ronald Koeman and Everton won the race to nab Keane, but it appears the hierarchy at Manchester United had the presence of mind to put in a sell-on clause when Keane left for Burnley.
All in all, it looks like United could rake in almost £8 million from Keane’s move, on top of the £2 million Burnley paid them back in 2015.

United might regret letting him leave, but they’ve made around £10 million for a player who made just one solitary Premier League appearance for the Red Devils.
Money goes to money, eh?
What do you think of Keane going to Everton? Will he be a success?
