Kieran Trippier house hunting in UK with Manchester United ready to ramp up efforts to sign defender

Kieran Trippier excelling with Atletico

On the back of a fairly disappointing campaign with Tottenham, Kieran Trippier signed for Atletico Madrid in 2019.

The Spaniards are believed to have paid around £20m to bring the Englishman to the Wanda Metropolitano.

The right-back went on to enjoy a solid debut campaign in La Liga, which saw him quickly recalled to the England set-up after he was dropped.

2020/21 was then a superb campaign for Tripper. He would feature 28 times in the league, providing six assists along the way as Atletico Madrid saw off FC Barcelona and Real Madrid to clinch their latest La Liga title.

Man United eyeing Trippier

Tripper, who is 30, still has another two years left on his contract with the Spanish powerhouse.

And given how well things have gone form him in Spain, him returning home in the near future may seem like an odd move.

However, recent reports are claiming that the 27-time capped international could be on his way back to England.

As per a report from the Mirror, citing The Athletic, Manchester United are ready to ramp up their efforts to sign Trippier in the summer transfer window.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be keen to bring in some competition for Aaron-Wan Bissaka, with Trippier already believed to be house hunting in the UK.

A potential deal could also be fairly cheap, with it claimed it could set Man United back just £10m.
