Manchester United prepared to sell Will Keane this summer – report

Manchester United are prepared to listen to offers for Will Keane this summer, according to reports.

The 23-year-old has only made two appearances for the first team and has suffered from persistent injury problems since joining the club in 2007.

It was reported earlier this month that Man United were only prepared to sell the striker on loan.

However, according to Sky Sports, United – who value Keane at around £1m – are now open to offers from other clubs.

With five clubs reportedly interested in the striker, it would be no surprise to see Keane move on after nearly ten years at the club. The striker has been woefully unfortunate in terms of injuries during his time at Old Trafford; in 2010, he made his debut off the bench against Blackburn Rover and looked set for a run in the first team before a broken leg consigned the youngster to the backwaters.

Last season he received another chance, this time from Louis van Gaal, against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup. Once again, he was forced off with injury, paving the way for Marcus Rashford‘s meteoric rise to stardom.

Unfortunately, some things are simply meant to be. And at 23, Keane must now seek somewhere that offers regular football as he approaches the prime stage of his career. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Memphis Depay all ahead of him in the pecking order, he Englishman will have to part ways with the club he joined as a 14-year-old.
