Tierney scores after Alex Sandro own goal – so will Juventus come back in January?

During the summer, Juventus emerged as a surprise candidate to prize Kieran Tierney away from Parkhead but Celtic remained strong and rebuffed their advances.

But this week was one of contrasting fortunes for Tierney and the Old Lady’s current left-back Alex Sandro.

On Wednesday night, Brazilian Sandro scored the own goal that saw Juve slip to a first home defeat of the season against Manchester United; who were interested in signing him this summer.

 

24 hours later, Tierney set Celtic on the way to a hugely impressive 2-1 win over RB Leipzig to continue the club’s recent resurgence and keep their Europa League hopes alive.

So will that convince Juve to return for Tierney in the January transfer window? As happy as Tierney is at Celtic, the lure of a side who are so keen to win the Champions League that they signed Cristiano Ronaldo may prove more enticing than a club who could well be out of all European competition by the turn of the year.

That said, Celtic fans would expect Tierney to stay at Paradise at least until the end of the season and his affinity for the club is such that he probably would, even if Juventus made stronger advances mid-season.
