Heartbreaking News To Manchester United As Their First Bid For Title Winning Target Is Rejected

Premier league runners up Manchester United are targeting a new right back in the summer transfer window and have shortlisted England and Atletico Madrid fullback Kieran Trippier as a possible addition to their squad.

Trippier enjoyed a stellar season with Atletico Madrid last season as he featured predominantly in their campaign that saw them narrowly edge out city rivals Real Madrid to the La Liga title.

United want a right back to rival Aaron Wan Bissaka for a starting berth next season and believe signing the former Tottenham Hotspur man could have a similar impact to how the Alex Telles arrival had on Luke Shaw.

Manchester United have however been dealt a massive blow in their pursuit of Trippier after their first bid for the marauding right-back believed to be in the region of £10m was rejected by the Diego Simeone led side.

The daily sports online understands that Atletico are looking to get close to £15m for Trippier who is expected to feature for England during the euros and United are keen to seal the deal before his stock rises.

United are expected to return with another bid for Trippier in the coming days as he is understood to the club's number one right back target with the Red devils tipped to match Atleti's asking price.
