Pat Nevin, a retired Scottish footballer who in his 20-year career, played for Clyde, Chelsea, Everton, Tranmere Rovers, Kilmarnock and Motherwell as a winger has urged Premier League club Manchester United to make a move for Celtic’s Kieran Tierney this summer.
The Old Trafford club are set to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to try and build a team capable of winning the Premier League title next season and perhaps the UEFA Champions League.
The Red Devils ended up as the current season runners-up to Manchester City in the epl summary this season and missed out on a trophy in Jose Mourinho’s second season in charge of the the club and they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea in the FA Cup final.
Tierney, who’s reportedly rated at £30m has been touted as the club’s possible target in recent months as Mourinho looks to strengthen the core of his defence ahead of the next season.
This report has come amid the uncertainty surrounding Luke Shaw’s future at the club following his lack of playing time this season.
And the Chelsea legend Nevin believes that Tierney would be a great coup for the Manchester club this summer. Nevin, speaking to Irish Radio station Newstalk, the Blues legend said:
“[Andy] Robertson is the second best left-back in Scotland. Man United might look at getting the best left-back in Scotland.
“He would walk into any team. It’s Kieran Tierney.”
Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge at the club back in 2013.
The Red Devils’ second placed finish this term was their highest since then.
Since the exit of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, Manchester United have failed to challenge for the Premier League title and their second placed this season was their highest since the exit of the Scottish former football manager and player who managed the club from 1986 to 2013.
