Man United ready to make £15m bid for 20-year-old – report
Manchester United are preparing to make a £15m bid to sign Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney, say reports
Manchester United are preparing to make a £15m bid for Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is claiming that Jose Mourinho is a keen admirer of the 20-year-old and has been keeping a close eye on the defender’s development.
The same report claims that Manchester United have been regularly sending scouts to keep tabs on his progress as the Red Devils ponder a summer transfer move for the full-back.
The story says that Mourinho is keen admirer of Tierney and that he is on the lookout for a new left-back this summer, with Luke Shaw’s long-term future at the club currently uncertain.
The article also states that Arsenal have been tracking Tierney and that Celtic will be reluctant to let him leave the Scottish club this summer.
Manchester United continue to be linked with a host of players this summer but have so far only completed a deal to bring defender Victor Lindelof to the club from Benfica.
The Red Devils will be hoping to complete some more signings before they jet off to the United States for their pre-season tour this month.
