Trippier wants to return to the Premier League

Kieran Trippier is ready to tell Atletico Madrid that he wants to return to the Premier League amid interest from Manchester United.

Englandbacken moved to the Spanish capital in 2019 for a fee that is believed to be in the area of ​​20 million pounds plus surcharges.

In just two years abroad, he has already won more silver when he succeeded in four seasons with Tottenham after Diego Simeone’s side was crowned La Liga champion last season.

United’s plans to bolster their right-back options have seen them turn their attention to Trippier, with Atletico quickly rejecting a £ 10m bid for the 30-year-old.

Simeone sees the former Spurs man as an important part of their title defense next season, although The Athletic reports that the La Liga champions are about to get a huge blow in their attempt to retain their positions, with Trippier desperate to return to English football.

The Red Devils are not the only Premier League side to have expressed interest in the right-back, but it is believed that a move to Old Trafford would be his preference with most of his family in nearby Bury.

Whether the revelation will change Atletico’s attitude to the England international remains to be seen, but with one year left on their current deal and the club having the option to extend their contract for another 12 months, Atleti will likely hold the cards in all future negations.

After United’s first bid for Trippier was described as “ridiculous” by Los Rojiblancos, the Spanish club revealed that they would only be willing to offer offers of around £ 30 million.

The Red Devils have already taken out as much as £ 73 million on Jadon Sancho this summer – a deal that is expected to be rubber-stamped in the next few days – and so it is unlikely they will be willing to match such a valuation and we could be in for a long-term transfer story.
