Is Luke Shaw’s resurgence at Man Utd good news for Celtic’s Tierney hopes?

One club who may be hoping Luke Shaw continues his good form for Manchester United is Celtic.

The former Southampton youngster has started off the new season very brightly and has started every game for the Red Devils so far.

It is a welcome turnaround for Shaw, whose strained relationship with Jose Mourinho has been well documented.

Following his horror leg break in September 2015 that ruled him out for 10 months, Shaw struggled to get back into the side when the Portuguese arrived on the scene in May 2016.

Mourinho publicly called into question the player’s attitude and commitment on a number of occasions.

It appears for the moment though that the pair are on good terms.

This season Shaw has arguably been United’s best player so far.

Will United leave Celtic’s Kieran Tierney alone now?

Former Bhoy Mo Camara has claimed United have been watching Celtic’s Kieran Tierney ‘loads’.

He told the Sun (as quoted by the Scotsman): “I do some scouting for Manchester United and scouted for Sunderland and we followed Kieran Tierney loads.

“He’s a very good left-back – he will go for big money if and when Celtic decide to sell. It’s one of those where the fans, manager and the chairman – none of them will want Tierney sold.”

With Shaw playing so well, there may not be need for United to make any move for the youngster in upcoming transfer windows.

Although Ashley Young is ageing and the Red Devils will need cover for the position eventually, Tierney would be the wrong kind of target if Shaw continues to play well.

It would make more sense for United to buy someone who has reached their potential already.

Moving for the highly rated Tierney would mean he and Shaw would end up competing; in theory slowing down both of their developments.
