Manchester United have suffered a setback in their bid to sign Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid, with reports suggesting the England international has decided to remain at the Wanda Metropolitano


Manchester United are set to give up on the signing of right-back Kieran Trippier, with reports suggesting the defender has decided to stay at Atletico Madrid.

Trippier had been identified as a potential transfer target for United this summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a new back-up to Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer.

The Norwegian boss is said to have wanted one brought in last year, but was unable to do so.

In January, Trippier was identified as a potential target, with United eager to bring him back to the Premier League.

Trippier himself, who is currently with the England squad, is said to have been eager for a return to his home country two years after he left Tottenham for Atletico Madrid.

However, it's now been reported in Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo that he's decided to stay put.

United were said to be willing to pay £18million in order to sign the full-back.

And that fee would have been enough for Atletico to sell, considering the financial difficulties the club has been dealing with as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking after Atletico won the La Liga title, Trippier spoke of how happy he was in Spain and appeared to close the door to any potential move away.

He said: "It is an unbelievable feeling and I am still pinching myself,” he said after winning LaLiga just over a week ago.

“That is one of the reasons why I went there, to try and win titles and most importantly to get my performances back on track from when I was at Tottenham.

“I feel like I made a big step when I first went there and have improved defensively and in attack. I am loving it. I am enjoying it and delighted to be back with England.”

Trippier's impressive form under Diego Simeone at the Wanda Metropolitano earned him a recall to the national side.

The Atletico boss is a big fan of the defender, and found he was one of the team's most reliable players this season.

And the feeling is mutual, as Trippier explained the impact the manager has had on his game.

For me personally, it has been a great experience, a different culture, working with Simeone.

"I am absolutely delighted to have won the league title. There is no better coach to improve than Simeone."

Trippier is one of four right-backs currently with the England set-up, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Reece James and Kyle Walker also in the camp.


But Trippier insisted earlier this week that he is relishing the competition, saying: “There are a lot of right-backs not here who are also doing extremely well also but we all get on really well.

“But for four of us to be included, we are all over the moon we are in the squad.

“We can play in different positions and are absolutely delighted to be involved. We are looking forward to the Euros and being involved.”
