United is Keane’s boyhood club but left in 2015 to sign a three-and-a-half year deal at Turf Moor.

But now Keane is seen as one of the best defenders in the top-flight and is now valued at £25million.

Everton can afford the big price-tag after being bankrolled by Farhad Moshiri.

But with United now readying a bid of their own, the Merseyside club are looking at other options.
