In our view, Manchester United do not really need to sign a right back because they have the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot at the club.
Still, for some reason, the Red Devils are consistently linked with Atletico Madrid star, Kieran Trippier, and the rumors are not going away.
As per a report covered by Manchester Evening News today (press image provided below), Man Utd could still secure the signing of the England international before deadline as the deal to hire his services is still on the table.
However, the renowned news source have mentioned that the chances of bringing the former Tottenham Hotspur star to Old Trafford are very little.
As far as the asking price is concerned, reports (AS) in Spain indicate that the Rojiblancos have been demanding activation of his £51.4m release clause in order to let him leave. I think there is no chance Man Utd will agree to the mentioned price keeping in view that the player is 30 and will mainly be a second choice RB behind Wan-Bissaka.
Trippier had a brilliant last season with the La Liga side as he won the Spanish title and he was a key member of the England side that reached the final of the European Championships. The veteran fullback provided an assist in the final against Italy.
The transfer window will shut down in over a week. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming days and will keep you updated.
