Former Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kieran Trippier is looking for a move back to the Premier League according leading English media outlets. The England international is currently an Atletico Madrid player after having made the move to La Liga in 2019.
Trippier signed a three-year contract with the Spanish giants and still has a year left in his contract, however he is keen on leaving the club this summer and is waiting for Manchester United to make a move for him. United have already had a bid rejected for the player, as Atleti hold out to their £30million valuation for the English defender.
Kieran Trippier wants a move to Manchester United this summer
Kieran Trippier was part of Gareth Southgate’s English side in the recently concluded EURO 2020 and made an appearance in the finals against Italy and also made a telling contribution with the assist for Luke Shaw’s goal. The right-back was an integral part of the Atletico side which won the La Liga title last year, and made 28 appearances despite facing a 10 game ban for betting issues.
Manchester United could do with another option in that area of the pitch, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka a fine defensive player, but somewhat lacking when it comes to going forward and providing an end-product with his delivery.
The prospect of joining United, though, is a big attraction for Trippier, who was born in neighbouring Bury and came through the academy at Manchester City. It will be tough to tempt Atletico Madrid to sell Trippier as he is a favourite of manager Simeone for his effort and commitment down the right flank.
