Fabrizio Romano says Manchester United had bid rejected for La Liga star

Manchester United have been busy in this summer’s transfer market and with a deal to sign Jadon Sancho seemingly set to be completed after Euro 2020, attention seems to have been turned to strengthening Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s backline.

Kieran Trippier has often been suggested as a target for Manchester United this summer but a deal has never been reported to be close, with transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano now confirming that the club had a bid rejected for the defender.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the clear first-choice in his position but Solskjaer is keen to add competition to all positions, having done the same on the other side with the arrival of Alex Telles last year.

“Manchester United made a bid for Kieran Trippier like three weeks ago which wasn’t accepted by Atletico Madrid, lets see what happens in the next weeks,” Romano told the Here We Go podcast.

Trippier was a key figure for the Spanish club last season and was the clear number one at right-back for Diego Simeone. The former Tottenham and Manchester City player has two years remaining on his deal in Madrid, leaving his club in a strong position to keep him this summer.

    Manchester United should act more professionally in
    their negotiations when closing deals for potential recruitment candidates with their clubs. They should not be dragging their feet after having identified their targets over many seasons.
    By closing deals fast, they will earn the respect of the selling clubs and will clamour to work with them in the future when transfer opportunities manifest themselves.
    Buying and selling of players are based on the need to buy and the need to sell. Selling clubs in the first place have to get the right price and buying clubs also must get the most affordable and commensurate price relevant to the players’ capability and suitability of their clubs’ needs.
