United’s opening Trippier bid rejected

Manchester United have had their initial bid to sign full-back Kieran Trippier from Atlético Madrid rejected by the Spanish club.

The 30-year old helped Atlético win the league last season, despite serving a  ban of two months after being found guilty of betting-related charges.

The Spanish champions are holding out for a  fee of closer to £34 million for the 30-year old.

Trippier moved to Spain two years ago after signing from Spurs in a deal worth £20 million plus bonuses.

He began his career with neighbours City, although he never played a senior game for the club and made his name initially at Burnley.

Although normally a right-back, Trippier was deployed on the left- side of defence for England’s first game in the Euros against Croatia.

United are expected to increase their bid as they look for a player who can give them more options further up the pitch than current first-choice Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
