Manchester United are interested in signing young Celtic stars Kieran Tierney and Moussa Dembele – but the pair have attracted the attention of many Premier League clubs so they face competition if they are to secure their signatures.

Full-back Tierney, 20, is one of the most highly-rated Scottish players to emerge in recent years, while 21-year-old Dembele has developed into a prolific striker in Scotland, following his move from Fulham in 2016.

It is thought that if United moved for both players – who they have been monitoring for some time – they could cost a combined £50 million.

However, the pair have attracted attention from across the Premier League – with representatives from 17 clubs watching them as they played in Celtic’s 1-2 defeat to Bayern Munich at Celtic Park last night. So if United were to make a move, it is likely they could face a bidding war for them.
