Celtic slap massive price tag on star left-back Kieran Tierney

17 May 2018

The Parkhead club are braced for offers for the 20-year-old this summer with Premier League sides Bournemouth, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur all credited with an interest.

Muaricio Pochettino is expected to be in the market for a new left-back with Danny Rose strongly tipped to leave north London after struggling to regain his first team place following injury and Tierney is a key target.

And now Diego Simeone's team have also burst on to the scene and will send their representatives to monitor the player in Celtic's final against Motherwell on Saturday, according to BBC Scotland.

The 20-year-old Scottish worldwide embodies everything that the Hoops are striving for and by relinquishing that, after a report in The Scottish Sun suggested that Atletico Madrid were the latest to show an interest in the left-sided defender, would be a massive show of weakness.

The Sun is reporting that Atletico have entered the race to sign the Scotland worldwide ahead of the 2018 summer transfer window.

Tierney scored four goals and had 11 assists to his name this season which, despite suggestions he has not recaptured the heights of 2016/17, is an improvement on his figures.

The Celtic starlet has also got vital Champions League experience under his belt and has made a total of 27 appearances in Uefa competitions in his fledgling career so far.
