Most likely his agent hoping to get a new deal.

If he carries on improving on his current curve he will get one without the agent shite .

I think Keane is player we should be keeping around, improving week on week at the moment and entering prime centre back age (26 now). I think people are far too quick to want to sell our players.

If this is an option, then absolutely.

Don't see the point of being a defender down and having to spend whatever profits on someone elsd

Think if we can make a profit on him then we should.

He’s one of the first to lose his head when the pressure is on and we can do better.

That’s not to say he’s shite or anything but it’s not a feature you want your CB to have.

I really like Keane, but at his current level, if someone was to offer £50m, you would have to pull their arm off from the socket and grab the cash as quickly as possible. He is currently worth what we paid for him, which wasn't chump change, and I can't see any merit in a club wanting to offer any more.

What would we then do with the £50m? Buy who?

If you had £50m to spend, would Michael Keane be the best option you could come up with?

I’m sure Brands and Silva could draw up a strong list.

Maybe you're right. For me buying a centre half is difficult, Keane is not perfect but he's improving, he's happy and settled and he's got lots of Premier League experience.

We could replace him with another Premier League defender, but who? Who would cost less/same and be guaranteed to be better?

Then there seems to be this belief that Brands can come up with a gem from abroad. But buying from abroad is always a risk. For example we could go for a player like Jonathan Tah from Leverkusen (just an example), but no matter how good he is in Germany, no matter how high his perceived potential, buying him would be a gamble.

I don't know, I could well be wrong but my outlook is that Keane is not really a big problem in the team, selling him would potentially create another problem, a problem where would need two CBs in the summer.

I'd rather we fixed problems rather than create more. £50m sounds like a lot, but it wouldn't go very far.

But to contradict myself, maybe we need to take risks like this? Maybe that's what Brands brings? So I dont know, but I'd keep Keane for £50m. I don't know.
