After quite a decent Euro display, Athletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier is desiring to make a return to the Premier League.

Kieran Trippier's performance in the Euros

The English right-back played a crucial role for his country during the Euros.

On their way to the finals, Trippier played the starter role 3 times and came in from the bench twice. Making it 5 appearances in the Euro competition.

Most importantly, he was named in the starting lineup for his country's final clash against eventual winners Italy.

English teams interested in Trippier

A host of English teams are reported to be interested in the right-back. However, the team looking to be at the forefront of his signature is Manchester United.

According to reports, Ole Gunner Solskjaer has been an admirer of the right-back and will be looking to add him to the Manchester United ranks.

Athletico Madrid desire to eat their cake and have it

The Spanish side is fully aware of the interest in Trippier by other clubs. Nonetheless, they do not look like giving up without a fight.

As it stands, the right-back only has a year left in his current deal with Athletico.

So far, the Spanish giants have not approached him for renewal. Nonetheless, according to reports from the Spanish capital, they are not willing to let Trippier go either.

A logical explanation to the Kieran Trippier saga

Athletico Madrid’s actions can be understood considering the age of the right-back. Kieran Trippier is no longer the youngest of players these days. The right-back is now in his early 30s.

In line with that, Athletico looks to be waiting for his current one-year deal to near its climax.

If that is achieved, they can then consider his physical levels and judge if he is fit for a renewal.


With the current run of events, a move away from the Wanda Metropolitano could be on the cards for the right-back.
