Manchester United have been connected with La Liga standout all summer, and fresh reports (ABC) claim that the Red Devils are still interested in signing the England international.
With only 13 days remaining in the transfer season, Manchester United must move quickly, yet hiring the right back from La Liga would cost a fortune.
According to AS, Manchester United have repeatedly tried to entice the Three Lions defender, but the Rojiblancos have made it clear that the player is not for sale.
According to the reputable Spanish news source, the only option to sign the former Tottenham Hotspur player is to activate the huge 60 million euros (£51 million) provision in his contract. No one wants to pay such a high cost for someone who will turn 31 in a month, according to reports.
In terms of the player’s ambition, we know that Trippier wants to transfer to Old Trafford (Sport), and even his family wants to return to England.
Last season, the 30-year-old played a vital part in Atletico Madrid’s La Liga victory. Under Diego Simeone’s management, he only played 25 minutes as a substitute in the first league match of the season against Celta Vigo.
There is no need for Manchester United to pay £51 million on a veteran fullback when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already has two young and excellent RBs in the form of Wan-Bissaka and Dalot.
As a result, the Norwegian manager should forget about attracting a right back and instead concentrate on bringing in a top-tier midfielder. What are your thoughts?
