Manchester United have been linked with Atletico Madrid star, Kieran Trippier, all summer long and reports suggest that signing the defender is still a possibility.
According to The Athletic, Diogo Dalot might end up moving out on loan again and in such a scenario, Man Utd have opened talks again to finally sign Trippier before the end of this month’s transfer deadline.
Over in Spain, AS have covered a story today (press image provided below) and reported that after confirming the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Red Devils are looking to bring in a right-back and they are considering making one last offer for the Rojiblancos star .
With time running out, Man Utd have to act fast as Atletico do not want to lose their prized asset late in the transfer window. It is stated that the 20-time English champions are aware that they will have to make a bid of at least 40 million euros (£34million) to have any chance of luring the 30-year-old.
Ideally, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should hold on to Diogo Dalot and spend £34million to improve the midfield, which is arguably his weakest department at the moment.
On the other hand, United do need more from their right-backs in the offensive third. The likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Walker and James have changed the game and have helped their respective clubs win major trophies.
Kieran Trippier is a top-quality and experienced player but he will turn 31 in just a few weeks. In your opinion, should Man Utd offer £34million to finally sign him or should they splash the cash to lure a midfielder?
