The Reds continue to be linked with a number of right-backs and The Mirror claims Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier may be too difficult to lure away from White Hart Lane.
The England international remains on Manchester United’s “watch list” according to the report, as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seeks a new right-back to add to his squad.

But it’s the fear of being held to ransom by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, despite Mauricio Pochettino allegedly showing a willingness to cash in on the England star.
Levy has a track record for being a difficult negotiator and it is noted that he will demand in excess of £30m for the former Burnley ace.
United are also being strongly linked with Crystal Palace rising star Aaron Wan-Bissaka and PSG’s Thomas Meunier.
With Antonio Valencia’s contract set to expire, Ashley Young not being good enough to start games for United, and Diogo Dalot still looking a bit raw, Solskjaer needs to strengthen the right-back department this summer.
Moreover, the report adds that Solskjaer doesn’t think Dalot is ready to be United’s answer at right-back.
Our preference would be a move for 21-year-old Wan-Bissaka.
