​Man Utd will sign one of these centre backs in the summer…

Manchester United will sign a centre-half this summer – and they've narrowed it down to Michael Keane, Virgil van Dijk and Victor Lindelof, according to Sky Sports.

United are desperate to find a suitable partner for Eric Bailly in the heart of their defence, and manager Jose Mourinho has told chairman Ed Woodward he wants one of the aforementioned trio signed in the upcoming transfer window.

Former United youth product Keane is reportedly to keen to re-join the club he has supported since he was a boy. However, Clarets chairman Mike Garlick said yesterday the club was under no pressure to sell their best players.

Dutchman van Dijk has become the most sought after centre back in the Premier League after a stellar season with Southampton. The 25-year old has piqued the interest of all the big clubs, and the Saints are set to play this to their advantage by holding out for a £50m fee.

Lindelof nearly joined United last summer, but a deal with his club Benfica fell through. It is believed the Portuguese club rate him at £40m.
