Atletico Madrid remain ‘calm’ about the future of Kieran Trippier despite transfer interest from Manchester United.
United have been linked with the signing the England international this summer as the Red Devils seek greater attacking impetus at right-back, with reports suggesting Trippier would be open to a return to the Premier League after two seasons in Spain.
The 30-year-old has been an almost ever-present when available since arriving from Tottenham, forming part of the side that were crowned La Liga champions in 2020/21.
According to Marca though, Atletico remain ‘calm’ regarding the defender’s situation despite interest from Old Trafford and are directing the Red Devils to the €40m (£34m) release clause in his contract, which still has two years to run at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Trippier – who came through the academy system at Manchester City – is understood to be open to a return to his native north west, though it remains to be seen whether United are willing to meet Atletico’s valuation of the player.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have already sealed the £72.9m signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and have agreed a deal with Real Madrid for Raphael Varane, with departures thought to be necessary before further significant incomings this summer.
