Manchester United ‘cool’ their interest in Atletico Madrid star

Manchester United have stepped off the gas on their pursuit of Atletico Madrid star Kieran Trippier, according to reports. The club has been pursuing a deal for the right-back this summer but are now ‘cooling’ their interest.

That’s according to The Athletic, who claim that the Old Trafford hierarchy are taking a step back due to Atletico Madrid’s high asking price, believed to be £28m.

Manchester United, who have been looking to add competition at right-back, were reportedly willing to offer £10m for the 30-year-old, which fell way short of the Madrid club’s valuation.

Instead, Diogo Dalot, who is set to return from a season-long loan at AC Milan, is reportedly being touted to be Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s back-up next season.

Dalot enjoyed a solid first season in Serie A and with two years remaining on his contract, it seems unlikely that he will be let go this summer.
