Manchester United In Market For A New Right-Back To Support Wan-Bissaka
Manchester United has held talks with the Atletico defender in January. However, the Red Devils stopped after Trippier got a 10-week ban for breaching gambling rules.
Now, Kieran Trippier is back on Man United’s radar ahead of the summer transfer window, according to The Athletic.
United are looking for a player to support Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Trippier appears to be the leading candidate.
According to the source, the English club would prefer an experienced player, and the 30-year-old England international fits the criteria.

This term, the right-back has provided 6 assists in 27 La Liga games as Atletico are nearing their first league title since the 2013-14 season.
