4 left-backs that may be targetted by Manchester United this summer
United desperately need to sign a left-back. Who is the right choice among these names?
Jose Mourinho has all but secured Manchester United their best position in Premier League since 2013. United look set to finish second with FA Cup final to play for.
The English giants have been inconsistent throughout the season as a result of the shortcomings in their squad.
Therefore, Mourinho might already be planning to fix a few areas in his squad like the full-back positions which are dominated by two players on the wrong side of 30.
The Red Devils are in dire need of full-backs with Ashely Young and Antonio Valencia ageing and the likes of Luke Shaw, Daley Blind or Matteo Darmian lacking the substance for the job.
That said, here is a list of players he would be targeting this summer to fill in at the left-back position.

#4 Kieran Tierney (Celtic FC)
Tierney is a name which has gotten the attention of some top clubs in recent time with his stellar performances in Scotland. The 20-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Machester United in the past few months.
The Celtic defender is a relentless worker on the pitch and a great attacking threat with his searing pace as his ability to beat a marker and deliver the ball into the final third is notable.
He has scored four goals and provided 11 assists this season so far. His fitness and the urge to give the best is amazing, an asset that is sure to endear him to Mourinho as he can make the young Scot stronger defensively while capitalizing on his attacking abilities.
He is definitely one for the future. United should look at him as the long-term option and mentor him at the club.
A fee in the region of £20 million should be enough for the Scottish giants to budge into selling the player.
