New Barca boss Ronald Koeman wants to bring the 27-year-old to the Nou Camp having worked with the centreback at Everton.
Koeman took Keane to Merseyside from Burnley in 2017 in a club-record sale for the Clarets of £30million, and any such move could fund the deal to sign Allan which is almost done.
Having failed to tempt him to Goodison in the January window, Italian media are reporting that Napoli have lowered their demands and the clubs are working on the finer details with an offer thought to be of €30m plus bonuses.
The deal is getting closer, but the two clubs are working on the finer details, such as the value of the bonuses and the achievement needed to trigger them. It’s also helped by the fact that Allan has made it clear he wants to reunite with Ancelotti.
