After securing a deal to sign Raphael Varane, reports suggest that Man Utd’s focus is to improve their midfield and right back positions.
As far as the RB position is concerned, England international and Atletico Madrid star, Kieran Trippier, has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.
According to Manchester Evening News (press image provided below), the Three Lions star is hoping to secure a move to Man Utd before the transfer deadline ends next month.
The renowned news outlet have mentioned that the former Tottenham Hotspur defender’s family has already moved back to Manchester.
In the report, MEN have stated that the 30-year-old will be out of contract in less than a year, however, that is not the case. He signed an extension until 2023 back in May.
Trippier was a regular starter in the last campaign under Diego Simeone and played a key role in helping the Rojiblancos win the La Liga title for the first time since 2014. Moreover, the experienced fullback was impressive for England at the European Championships as well. He set up the opening goal for Shaw in the final.
Therefore, the Spanish side would not let him leave for cheap. As far as the asking price is concerned, earlier this month, Catalan source, Mundo Deportivo, reported that it at least 30 million euros (£25.5million) would be needed to lure the ex Burnley player.
In your opinion, should Man Utd pay £25.5million to sign Kieran Trippier? As per The Telegraph, the Red Devils need to sell before making an offer.
