Man United place 28-year-old Tottenham star on summer wishlist – report
Man United are interested in a potential deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier this summer, according to a report
Manchester United are interested in a potential swoop for Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kieran Trippier should a deal for Aaron Wan-Bissaka fail to come to fruition, according to a report in England.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that Manchester United are interested in Trippier, 28, as a potential alternative to Crystal Palace full-back Wan-Bissaka.
The same article states that Manchester United are facing competition from defending Premier League champions Manchester City for the London-born Palace defender.
According to the same story, the 20-time English champions are hopeful that Tottenham may be open to the sale of Trippier in order to raise transfer funds for Mauricio Pochettino this summer.
The Daily Mirror go on to suggest that Trippier would act as a replacement for Antonio Valencia ahead of the Manchester United captain’s departure this summer.
Trippier earned a glowing reputation following his promising performances in the World Cup last summer as England managed to reach the semi-finals.
However, the Spurs defender has struggled for form throughout the current Premier League campaign to raise questions about his future at Spurs.
Trippier has scored one goal and has made three assists in 26 games in the Premier League this season.
Tottenham were narrow 1-0 winners against Brighton in north London on Tuesday night to bolster their top-four prospects.
