MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly leading the race to sign Celtic duo Kieran Tierney and Moussa Dembele.
The in-demand pair have attracted a wide range of interest from a host of Premier League clubs.
17 English clubs sent scouts to watch the Parkhead duo in action against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.
But United are in pole position to sign the pair, according to The Mirror.
Representatives from Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal were all spectating from the sidelines at Celtic Park.
Left-back Tierney has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in Scottish football since making his senior debut as a 17-year-old.
Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has attempted to deter outsider interest by offering the 20-year-old a new six-year contract.
After signing his deal, he told Celtic TV: “I still can’t believe it. It’s amazing.
Striker Dembele has been heavily linked with a mega-money switch back to the Premier League after joining Celtic in June 2016.
The ex-Fulham youngster hit 32 goals in 49 appearances for the Bhoys last term.
He was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea last summer, but a deal with the Premier League champions failed to materialise.
Rodgers is expected to demand around £50m for the Parkhead pair.
