Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are hoping for a successful future, as they’ve failed to show their dominance since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
Interestingly, the Red Devils have already secured a European spot for next season as they remain in second-place, with rivals Manchester City edging closer towards the Premier League title. Although, it looks as if United are more focused on the summer transfer window, as according to the Daily Mail, Jose Mourinho will send scouts to watch Kieran Tierney this weekend.
The Portuguese boss has made signing a new left-back his No 1 priority this summer after Luke Shaw failed to convince him in the current campaign.
So, it now looks as if Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney is on the Manchester club’s radar as the summer transfer window approaches, with Mourinho sending scouts to watch the defender in the Old Firm derby this weekend.
Indeed, it’s understood that the 55-year-old planned to watch Tierney on international duty last month in Edinburgh, but he was forced to pull out of the match against Costa Rica through injury. Although, it looks as if he’ll finally receive a scouting report on the Scotland international this weekend, with a good performance possibly sealing him a summer move to Old Trafford.
There’s no doubt that Kieran Tierney is one of the most promising defenders in the whole of world football, as he’s already established himself as an international regular and also has some European experience under his belt. So, many of our local Mancunians are delighted that Mourinho is taking a look at the youngster, as he could establish himself as a future star in years to come.
