Manchester United striker set to leave after failing to agree terms

by Sam Peoples

Will Keane could become the latest academy graduate to leave Manchester United as the club has failed to agree terms on a new contract, according to the Daily Mail.

The reports also suggest that Paul Pogba has actually recommended Keane to Juventus’ scouts.

Keane was named the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year in 2010 after a great season and up until suffering a cruciate ligament injury on England duty in 2012, Keane was prolific for United’s Reserves and a crucial player in the 2011 FA Youth Cup success.

Sir Alex Ferguson said he was going to name Keane in the 2012/13 senior squad and take him on the pre-season tour before he was struck down with injury.

Since a season long lay-off, Keane has struggled to have a real impact on loan at QPR and these reports suggest he could follow the likes of Paul Pogba, Mats Moller Daehli and Ezekiel Fryers out of the club.

The buzz around 18-year-old James Wilson right now is what Keane had when he was scoring goals for fun and if he does leave United, it will be yet another promising youngster from the 2011 FA Youth Cup triumph who leaves United without breaking into the first team properly.
