Manchester United could look to wrap up a deal to sign Kieran Tierney from Celtic next summer, according to a report in England.

Manchester Evening News, as quoted by The Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in a deal to bring in the Scotland international in the 2019 summer transfer window.

The same article states that Jose Mourinho has made the decision to stall the club’s plans to sign the highly rated 21-year-old ahead of the new Premier League season.

According to the same story, the Red Devils plan to keep tabs on Tierney throughout the 2018-19 season before Manchester United look at a potential transfer swoop at the end of the campaign.

Daily Mirror list Chelsea FC, Everton, Arsenal and FC Barcelona as potential suitors for the Scotland international following his impressive start to his Celtic career.

Manchester United ended up in second place in the Premier League table last season to secure their best finish since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.
