Manchester United are planning a fresh move for Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier.

The Red Devils were keen on landing the England international over the summer, but they were priced out of a move.

They were willing to pay £10m, but Atletico were adamant that they wouldn't sell him for less than his £34m release clause.

Trippier will enter the final 18 months of his contract in January, and ESPN claims that United are set to make a fresh move.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been United's undisputed right-back, but he has struggled to provide sufficient attacking threat.

Diogo Dalot was touted to provide competition after staying this summer, but he has hardly played for the club this season.

Trippier's experience is highly valued by the United hierarchy while the player himself is keen on a Premier League return.

The Spanish champions are unlikely to change their transfer stance, but United are still planning an improved offer to test their resolve.
