Man United in advanced talks with €20m-rated English defender

Man United reportedly look to have been handed some hugely encouraging transfer news as Kieran Trippier has told England team-mates he’s keen on a possible move to the Theatre of Dreams this summer.

The Atletico Madrid defender has been linked as a summer target for the Red Devils to provide competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka and could cost nearly £15-20m.

Kieran has communicated his desire to join Man United during chats with his England colleagues ahead of this summer’s Euro 2020 tournament. This all sounds promising for the Red Devils, who could certainly benefit from bringing in a player of Kieran’s quality and experience in time for next campaign.

England international had a fine career at Tottenham before joining Atletico in the summer of 2019, where he’s continued to show his quality. Kieran formed part of Atletico’s La Liga title-winning side in the season just gone, and his attacking style of play should make him a good fit in the Norwegian manager’s side.

Although Wan-Bissaka is a solid defender, he has occasionally been lacking when it comes to his attacking play from right full-back, so the Englishman would be a useful alternative for the club in this key area.
