Embattled Premier League side Manchester United are reportedly turning their attention to Atletico Madrid star Kieran Trippier with the hope of getting his signature next year.
This comes after the Old Trafford landlords crashed out of the Champions League after losing against Leipzig putting manager Ole Solskjaer under serious pressure.
But the Red Devils will have to offer Atletico Madrid chiefs big money for them to have the chance of luring the 30-year-old England international back to the Premier League.
Kieran Trippier moved to Spanish side Atletico Madrid from Tottenham last year signing a deal until 2022 and has also established himself in the La Liga.
According to the report on Sky Sports, Manchester United chiefs want another right back who can challenge Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
30-year-old Trippier has made 48 appearances since joining the Spanish club with 15 of those coming this season which is an incredible record.
Diego Simeone's team have made a formidable start to the 2020/21 La Liga season and have been tipped as one of the contenders for the title.
Manchester United on the other hand are currently occupying sixth position on the Premier League table with 19 points after 10 games played.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Ole Solskjaer was reportedly been blamed by some Manchester United players following their exit in the Champions League in which they lost against Leipzig.
The Premier League side have been favored to secure their passage to the knockout stages of the Champions League, but they suffered an embarrassing defeat in their last group game.
Defeat against Leipzig means that Manchester United will now continue their campaign in Europe this term in the second tier which is the Europa League.
Solskjaer has now put himself under pressure following the Champions League defeat with many fans clamoring for the Norwegian to be sacked.
However, the report added that majority of the squad are still backing Ole Solskjaer this term and have the believe that the current situation would change.
Already, Manchester United have been linked with former Tottenham gaffer Mauricio Pochettino who is yet to get any club since he was sacked at Spurs.
