Manchester United have reportedly put Celtic star Kieran Tierney on their shortlist with Jose Mourinho in the market for a new left-back.
The Red Devils have been left impressed with the 20-year-old after a number of starring performances for the Scottish Champions.
Luke Shaw, Daley Blind and now Ashley Young have all alternated the position, with Mourinho looking for consistency down the left-flank.
According to the Daily Record, Tierney has been identified as a cheaper alternative for Juventus’ Alex Sandro.
While United are reportedly also keeping tabs on Fulham’s teenage starlet Ryan Sessegnon who has nailed down a starting spot at Craven Cottage.
But the Europa League champions are believed to prefer an experienced full-back, giving the Scottish international the edge.
Tierney has enjoyed two Champions League campaigns with the Hoops, featuring over 20 times in European competitions.
While he was also instrumental in Celtic’s 69-game unbeaten run – as well as helping his side to two league titles, one Scottish Cup and two Scottish League Cups.
However, Tierney’s love for the Bhoys could be a stumbling point, with the youngster recently spotted in Tenerife donning a Celtic centenary shirt.
And he recently signed a six-year deal with the Glaswegian side until 2023 to fend off interest from potential suitors.
Former Celtic fan favourite Chris Sutton tipped him to play for La Liga giants Real Madrid, claiming he would be a bargain for any club.
He has featured in 30 games in all competitions under Brendan Rodgers this season, and has amassed well over 100 appearances since making his debut in April 2015.
