Will Keane considers leaving Manchester United to join Pogba

Manchester United youngster Will Keane is keen to listen to offers from abroad after failing to agree a new deal with the club, reports the Daily Mail.

Keane, 21, sat and watched as James Wilson, who is three years his junior, bag a brace against Hull City at Old Trafford. Thanks to that fine performances from the 18-year-old, Keane's route to the first team looks all but impassable and, as a result, he is considering a move away.

Both Arsenal and Newcastle are believed to be interested in signing the England youth international but Keane is more attracted to the possibility of playing in Serie A with both Juventus and Fiorentina interested.

A move to Turin would see Keane link up with his former teammates Paul Pogba, who left Old Trafford in 2012. The pair enjoyed success in the Manchester United youth team, winning the FA Youth Cup. Both were tipped for big things but, while Pogba has become a huge star, Keane has had his progress halted by a serious knee injury.

Keane made his first team debut in 2011 but, thanks to the season-long absence, was forced to rebuild his reputation as a top youngster.  A loan move to QPR failed to reap much benefit but Manchester United still offered him a new contract.

He rejected that new deal and is looking to join a club with a realistic chance of making the first team.

It was earlier reported by the same newspaper that Juventus' interest was created when Pogba returned a gleaming recommendation to scouts. It seems Pogba himself is keen to see his former teammate at the Juventus Stadium next season.

Scouts are obviously convinced that Keane can rediscover his pre-injury sharpness and a host of contract offers seem to be on their way to him if he does decide to leave Manchester United this summer.
