Blow for Mourinho, Michael Keane to join Chelsea this summer

Former Premier League star and football pundit Danny Higginbotham sees Manchester United target Michael Keane joining Chelsea.

Keane is set to leave Burnley this summer after starring for the Clarets in the Premier League this season and making his England debut.

Man United and Everton are two of the teams interested in signing the defender, whose contract runs out in 2018.

Chelsea are to lose captain John Terry at the end of the season so may look for a replacement

Hinting on Keane’s possible move to Chelsea, Higginbotham said: “You could see him (Keane) there, It all depends on Conte, what does he see coming through?

“Obviously Zouma is there, you’ve got the younger Chalobah, Trevor who’s doing very well in the youth cup.

“Ake as well, who had a fantastic time at Bournemouth. Does he believe there are players there ready to take that step up?

“I believe at Chelsea they have some fantastic youngsters but they need to be given an opportunity.”
