In a recent print edition, Sport revealed that Atletico Madrid full-back Kieran Trippier is keen on joining Manchester United this summer. However, it is understood that the Red Devils might struggle to meet the Spanish side’s asking price for the England international after they made two big-money signings in the form of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane in this off-season (transcripted and translated by Sport Witness).
Trippier’s Successful Campaign In Spanish Football
Trippier enjoyed a productive campaign in La Liga as he put in a handful of impressive displays for Diego Simone’s side over the past 12 months. The Bury-born talent secured six assists in 35 matches for the Madrid giants last season on all fronts.
The English sensation showed some signs of maturity after he averaged 2.2 tackles, 1.4 interceptions, 1.7 clearances, 1.2 key passes and 0.7 dribbles per game in the Spanish top-flight. Trippier’s contributions were enough for Atletico to win the league title last season. He even distributed the ball relatively well from the right flank based on his pass completion rate of 79.4% in league football (stats via whoscored).
Trippier has taken great strides towards improving himself during his time at the Wanda Metropolitano. Hence, he will be a shrewd signing for Man United if they decide to go all out in pursuit of the ex-Tottenham Hotspur right-back this summer.
Should The Red Devils Get Trippier On Board This Summer?
Trippier has decent pace in his locker and can make some energetic dashes with the ball down the right flank. He loves to drive to the byline and can deliver some inviting crosses into the opponent’s penalty box.
The 33-time England international has got the vision to pick out a killer pass in the attacking third. More importantly, he is a solid defender at the back as he can time his challenges well to secure possession back on the defensive end of the pitch. Trippier also doesn’t hesitate to clear his lines when needed which makes him such a great all-around full-back.
Hence, Man United should consider getting the English sensation on board as he will serve as ideal competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the race to earn a regular right-back spot in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team. Trippier will even bring a winning attitude to the Man United dressing room and could help them bridge the gap to Manchester City in the Premier League title race next season. Therefore, Solskjaer should think about funding a move to bring the Atletico star to the Threatre of Dreams before the transfer window slams shut at the end of this month.
