Manchester United are set to press ahead with the signing of highly-rated Celtic defender Kieran Tierney, according to The Mirror.
It has been a somewhat frustrating summer for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United thus far and the club’s supporters are hopeful that some signings can be made to bolster the squad.
Mourinho sent scouts to watch Tierney in action for Scotland during their recent World Cup Qualifier against England and United now look to be in pole position to sign the defender.
With Luke Shaw’s future looking increasingly uncertain at Old Trafford, Mourinho is keen to sign another left-back and all roads currently lead towards Tierney being the left-sided defender next season.
Some United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are sceptical to say the least with some not sure whether he can cut the mustard in a demanding English Premier League, stating that Scottish football is a doddle in comparison.
United will be looking to compete for the Premier League title during 2017/18 and Mourinho will be keen to ensure that the squad is well stocked ahead of future endeavours.
One Manchester United fan is sat with the landlord chewing the fat on the potential transfers that could happen this summer. He is of the belief that Tierney is good but asks the question of whether he is better than Luke Shaw?
