Man Utd and Kieran Trippier ‘hold discussions’ as Atletico Madrid star makes transfer call

England: Hilarious moment Kieran Trippier walks the wrong way

Manchester United have reportedly held talks with Kieran Trippier over a potential return to England, with the right-back open to coming back to the Premier League.

United are making plans for the summer transfer window already, despite the January window being just around the corner.

The Red Devils are reportedly set to have a quiet winter window, and are unlikely to make any serious signings.

They’ve spent big this year already, having forked out £46.5million for Bruno Fernandes, £40.5m for Donny van de Beek and £19m on Amad Diallo.

But the Red Devils are unlikely to follow that up with any more significant business in January.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are sitting pretty in the Premier League table after a strong spell of results.

They’re currently sat in fourth place in the table – with a game in hand over the three teams ahead of them.

And in the January window, they’re apparently unwilling to make any serious signings to improve the squad.

However, they have held talks with Trippier over a potential future move, according to The Athletic.

The right-back has been at Atletico Madrid since the 2019 summer transfer window, as he left Tottenham on a free transfer.

He’s been successful out in Spain, and has become one of Diego Simeone’s favourite players.

But regardless of his successes in La Liga, he is apparently open to the idea of returning to the Premier League.

Trippier grew up in the area of Manchester, having come through the academy at Manchester City.

A move in January could be made more difficult after the defender was handed a 10-week ban from football after breaching FA betting rules.

United are still interested, however, as they are looking for support options for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The right-back position is one United are light on the ground with, as they don’t have any back-up for the man they signed from Crystal Palace.

Brandon Williams could be moved from the left to the right in the future to provide support for Wan-Bissaka, but the arrival of Trippier would also help the problem.
