Trippier to Manchester United?

Manchester United are interested in landing the signature of Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid this summer.

The Red Devils were heavily linked with the Englishman in January, but decided against an approach after his FIFA ban.

According to Manchester Evening News, they will make a renewed approach this summer with Trippier keen on signing for them.

Trippier was a boyhood United fan, and he is said to relish the prospect of joining the club in the upcoming transfer window.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants more competition in the right-back role despite the success of Aaron Wan-Bissaka in recent years.

Wan-Bissaka is one of the best tacklers in the league, but he has not offered much in an attacking point of view for United.

Trippier, who has vast experience in the division, with Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley, has been identified as the ideal competitor.

The former Spurs man bagged six assists for Atletico last season. The club won the La Liga title after a seven-year wait.
