Manchester United’s hopes of signing Kieran Tierney from Celtic this summer have taken a blow because he doesn’t want to leave the club, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Record is reporting that the Red Devils have a “long standing” interest in bringing the 21-year-old left-back to Old Trafford as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

However, the same report indicates that it looks unlikely that Manchester United will be able to conclude a deal for Tierney this summer because the Scotland international does not want to leave Celtic this year.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a new left-back this summer and the Red Devils are keeping tabs on Juventus’ Alex Sandro, according to the same report.

The Red Devils are looking to make a number of new acquisitions this summer as they bid to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

Manchester United finished second in the Premier League table but 19 points behind Manchester City and without a trophy in Jose Mourinho’s second season in charge at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils had won both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho’s first campaign at Old Trafford.
