Tottenham & Kieran Trippier
It’s been an unbelievable summer for Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier.
Prior to the World Cup in Russia, Gareth Southgate made the decision to play Trippier at right wing-back and slot Man City’s Kyle Walker into his back three.
That decision paid off in a big way.
The Spurs full-back established himself as one of England’s most attacking outlets at the World Cup.
Trippier is now a lock in the England starting XI. That’s some turnaround after the defender wasn’t even in the England squad at the start of the 2018 World Cup campaign.
27-year-old Trippier is under contract at Tottenham until 2022.
Juventus, Real Madrid & PSG
Yet, the Daily Mail have set off alarm bells for Tottenham fans on Tuesday regarding Trippier’s future.
The Mail have reported that three of Europe’s biggest clubs – Juventus, Real Madrid and PSG – are all keen on the Spurs right back. Readers are told:
Sportsmail understands a number of top clubs on the continent – including Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid – are now tracking the Bury born 27-year-old.
PSG lost Brazil right-back Dani Alves to injury and are thought to be looking for a replacement, while Juventus are keen on finding support for high-profile arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Real Madrid are also seeking a right back and the fact that the European window does not close until the end of the month may keep Spurs on tenterhooks.
Manchester United’s name is also thrown into the mix. However one has to doubt Man United’s interest after they signed Diogo Dalot from Porto this summer.
