According to recent reports, Manchester United are ready to sign Kieran Tierney from Celtic at all cost even if it means waiting till next summer.
Reports recently suggested that Everton has decided to let go of their interest in Tierney due to Celtic’s asking price of £25 million.
United reportedly have a long-standing interest in the Scotland international left-back and are prepared to wait patiently till next summer.
Tierney is one of the best left-back Europe can boast of, and it is no surprise that the Celtic star is a transfer target for Premier League duo Everton and Manchester United.
However, it would do the 21-year-old a lot of good if he stays at Parkhead for one more season at least.
The youngster has progressed well over the past three seasons, and another year at Celtic working with former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be of great help and will prepare him for a move to the Premier League, especially for Jose Mourinho’s United.
Meanwhile, former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has suggested that Tierney will be in a tight fix if he decides to leave for Everton this summer.
Sutton wrote in The Daily Record: “Like McGinn, he still has a bit to go but there’s absolutely no doubt he’ll get there. If anything, I’d suggest he’d be better holding off for something higher up the food chain than Everton.
“They’re a decent club but they won’t be playing in the Champions League any time soon. Tierney will, whether it’s with Celtic or someone else.
“The lad is going places but he has talked himself in to the corner a tad with his comments about being a Celt for life. The fans won’t take too kindly if he was then to jump ship but they need to get real.”
