CELTIC are on the brink of a £2.5million Kieran Tierney transfer windfall.
The former Hoops left-back, who moved to Arsenal for £25million in the summer of 2019, has emerged as a shock target for Real Madrid, according to a report in sports media outlet El Espanol.
Tierney, 24, is valued in excess of £50million and the Hoops can expect at least 10 per cent of any profit in a sell-on clause inserted in the contract by former chief executive Peter Lawwell.
ON THE MOVE…Kieran Tierney shows the all-action style that made him such a hit with the Celtic support.
The Scotland international defender is a key man for Gunners’ gaffer Mikel Arteta and agreed an extension on his current deal which will run until 2026.
However, the Spanish giants are now showing interest in the one-time Hoops fans’ favourite and could make a big-money swoop in the summer.
Tierney was introduced to the Celtic first team by ex-manager Ronny Deila against Dundee at Dens Park in April 2015 as he challenged Emilio Izaguirre for the No.3 shirt.
He became a mainstay in the line-up when Brendan Rodgers arrived just over a year later and his consistent performances left to his move to London.
