Tottenham & Man Utd In Battle To Sign £20m International Defender

By on April 30, 2018

The transfer window may be 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 Kieran Tierney…

Tottenham and Manchester United will have to battle Bournemouth for the signature of Celtic’s £20m-rated defender Kieran Tierney this summer, according to the Sun.

Tierney has been with Celtic his entire career having joined the clubs youth system as a kid and he’s emerged as one of the best defenders in Scottish football since breaking in to the first team in 2015.

The 20-year-old has become a key player for Brendan Rodgers’ team and has been virtually ever-present to help his boyhood club clinch yet another Scottish Premier League title at the weekend.

Tierney has also been a regular with the Scotland national team in recent years and has even captained his country despite his tender years so he certainly has a huge future ahead of him.

The youngsters potential has alerted clubs here in the Premier League as the Sun claims Man Utd and Tottenham have expressed their interest after tracking Tierney throughout the season.

Jose Mourinho is expected to strengthen at left-back this summer as Ashley Young turns 33 in July and Tierney has been earmarked as a potential replacement for Luke Shaw – who’s tipped to leave Old Trafford after falling out of favour.

Mauricio Pochettino is also in the market for a new left-back as Danny Rose is expected to leave the north Londoners after struggling to regain his first team place following a serious knee injury and Tierney is also on Tottenham’s radar.

However, it looks like Spurs and United will face fresh competition as the Sun claims that Bournemouth have joined the chase to sign the £20m-rated defender this summer.

Eddie Howe is looking to strengthen following another solid campaign and the newspaper says he’s hoping the lure of regular first team football will persuade Tierney to turn down Spurs and United in favour of a move to the south coast.

Obviously the youngster will want to be playing regularly if he does leave Celtic but it will also be difficult for him to reject the likes of Tottenham or Man Utd so it’s going to be interesting to see where Tierney ends up this summer.

    fraser have a bit of self respect stop doing this as a job. Become a hairdresser do something useful with your life,’Interesting where he ends up’ Wake up he has repeatedly said he is going nowhere so why print this utter nonsense. He has just signed a 6 year contract and said in the papers last week ‘I don’t know how much of a sign that is, I cannot be any clearer’. You clearly know absolutely nothing about scottish football so why write about it, you charlatan. Did you see his reaction to winning the league yesterday? Look at it. he is a future Celtic captain and won’t be going to the over rated EPl any time soon and as for Bournemouth? They would need to sell the entire town to be able to afford him. he is the bast left back in Britain. What di Man Utd pay for Luke Shaw? Double it and add on 20 million and that will be nearer to the price for Tierney.
