TIERNEY ON DEVILS’ RADAR
United eye Celtic sensation as cover for Darmian’s intended exit
demand upwards of £10million (RM55.4 million).
Tierney claimed afterwards Gordon Strachan’s surprise selection at Hampden Park was something he relished, which will have interested United further.
Jose Mourinho is on the hunt for full backs this summer, with a question mark over the futures of Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian.
Darmian would prefer a switch back to Italy if he was to leave Old Trafford after filling in a number of roles this term.
The 27-year-old’s potential departure would see United requiring a defender just as versatile, with constant checks being made on Tierney.
United are also known to have looked at Celtic’s top scorer Moussa Dembele. Daily Mail jump way ahead of Guardiola in the earning stakes, with the Spaniard involved in far fewer off-the-pitch activities.
Mourinho’s commercial popularity has helped him move ahead of Marcello Lippi, who earns a whopping £20.3m in his role as China manager.
Despite being without a club since being sacked by Paris Saint-Germain last summer, Laurent Blanc remains third on the list of top-earning bosses.
The former France defender will take home £17.3m this season, which was the reported pay-off he received from the Ligue 1 giants.
Between Blanc and Guardiola sits Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti, who is enjoying a fine first season at the Allianz Arena.
