What’s the latest news regarding transfers involving Kieran Trippier?
Football Insider claims right-back Trippier has told his friends, including his England team-mates, that he is eager to return to the Premier League and likely to join Manchester United.
The report says the former Tottenham defender has already started looking for homes in the northwest.

How much could Trippier cost Man United?
According to the Mirror, Atletico have demanded a fee of around £ 30million for the right-back in order to fend off the interests of the Manchester club.
The report suggests Atletico manager Diego Simeone doesn’t want to lose the defender and the club will insist on high fees for Trippier.
Various previous reports suggested the Red Devils had rejected a £ 10million offer for the 30-year-old as they sought to add depth to their defensive areas.
How did Trippier behave during the opening of the Euro in England?
Many fans expected Luke Shaw or Ben Chilwell to start at left-back for England on Sunday, but Gareth Southgate had other ideas.
Trippier was a surprise inclusion in England’s starting XI against Croatia, but Southgate’s courageous appeal paid off as his side won 1-0 in their first Euro game.

WhoScored numbers show Trippier provided defensive solidity at the back, as no England squad has made more tackles than the 30-year-old with two. He also made an impact in the attacking zones after registering a key pass, tying the highest number of English players.
United need Trippier?
Trippier showed in England’s opener at Euro that he can operate on the opposing side of defense when needed, which should only increase his appeal for Man United.
He would be a solid addition to Old Trafford’s defensive ranks, as United lack depth in this area, especially at right-back.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has cemented himself in United’s starting XI, but his competition for a starting spot isn’t particularly difficult. Brandon Williams is the only senior member of the squad capable of replacing the former Crystal Palace full-back, suggesting that additional reinforcements are indeed needed this summer.
Meanwhile, the addition of Alex Telles last summer made only eight Premier League starts for United, so there is an argument to find a more convincing replacement for Luke Shaw as well.
Trippier could solve both of these issues and has a lot of Premier League experience thanks to his spells with Burnley and Tottenham.
