Man Utd Confident Of Agreeing Deal As Mourinho Prepares Formal Offer For £25m Star
Manchester United are ready to formalise their interest in Kieran Tierney over the coming weeks by tabling an offer for the £25m-rated Celtic defender
The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, the latest on Man Utd’s pursuit of Kieran Tierney….
Manchester United are ready to formalise their interest in Kieran Tierney over the coming weeks by tabling an offer for the £25m-rated Celtic defender, according to the Mirror.
Jose Mourinho is gearing-up for another busy summer of transfer activity as the United boss knows he needs to further strengthen his squad if they’re to compete for major trophies next season.
Left-back has always been a problem area for Mourinho ever since he arrived at Old Trafford and Ashley Young has been used as a make-shift solution for the majority of the campaign.
Luke Shaw has struggled to hold down a regular place since returning from a long-term injury and the former Southampton star is expected to be on the move this summer amid reports of a bust-up with Mourinho.
Tottenham’s Danny Rose has been linked with a move to United in recent months but the Mirror claim that Mourinho has made Tierney his prime target as he feels the Celtic star is a more versatile and better value signing.
The 20-year-old has been with Celtic his entire career having joined the clubs youth system as a child and he’s been hugely impressive since breaking in to the first team set-up in 2015.
The Scottish international has made his name at left-back but he’s able to play anywhere across the back four and the newspaper says he’s valued at £25m – which is around half of what Rose will be on the market for.
Tierney signed a new long-term contract at Celtic Park in October but the Mirror claim that United are ready to test Celtic’s resolve with a formal offer over the coming weeks and are confident of getting a deal agreed.

United obviously have the financial clout to force the Glasgow giants in to a sale and it will be difficult for Tierney to turn down a move to Old Trafford so this is one transfer I would certainly keep an eye on over the next few months.
