Premier League giants reportedly renounce their interest in Celtic defender

Celtic vs Hearts

The reputable portal Goal.com have broadcasted the news from the Manchester Evening News regarding Manchester United interest in signing Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.

According to the reports, the Red Devils have dropped their idea of engaging a new defender this January, which means Celtic will be able to hold on their 20-year-old star.

Jose Mourinho has had issues with his full-backs since Luke Shaw has been struggling with injuries and Daley Blind has failed to make a positive impression.

Thus, the former Inter Milan manager has decided to search an adequate replacement on the market, with Tierney named as a potential candidate.

However, the latest news suggests Mourinho will postpone this decision until the summer. In case Shaw leaves Old Trafford, the Portuguese expert will go for Juventus star Alex Sandro.

Tierney is a vital part of Brendan Rogers’ first-team, and it would be extremely important for the Hoops to retain one of the most promising young talents in the UK.
