‘It Keeps Getting Worse’ ‘Why Spend Money On A Backup?’ Fans Not Pleased As United Reopen Talks To Sign England Star

‘It Keeps Getting Worse’ ‘Why Spend Money On A Backup?’ Fans Not Pleased As United Reopen Talks To Sign England Star

Manchester United have revived their interest in Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier, according to The Athletic‘s Laurie Whitwell.

The journalist claims a move for the England international could happen if Diogo Dalot joins Borussia Dortmund on loan:

As Whitwell says, a deal is still unlikely, and most fans on Twitter would prefer United not to sign Trippier before the transfer window closes:

United have been after Trippier since January so it is not surprising that they have re-entered talks to snap up the former Tottenham player.

Arsenal have also been linked with the 30-year-old but most journalists believe that the fullback would prefer a move to Old Trafford if he had a choice.

The main obstacle to any deal going ahead is the asking price, with Atletico said to be asking for around €40m (£34m) to €60m (£51m). However the La Liga champions are trying to sign Lille right-back Zeki Celik so if they snap up the Turkish international, they could soften their stance on Trippier.
