KIERAN TRIPPIER has told England team-mates he is keen to secure a move to Manchester United.

The Red Devils are considering a summer swoop for the Atletico Madrid ace as they try to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes the 30-year-old is the ideal player to strengthen his defensive options and also provide competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back.

And though he has been a big hit in Spain, it appears the ex-Tottenham man is excited about the prospect of a switch to Old Trafford in his native North-West if the opportunity arises.

The former Burnley defender remains central to Atleti’s plans having been instrumental in helping Diego Simeone’s side to the LaLiga title.

But United believe they can persuade the Spaniards to strike a deal if they come up with a bid in the region of £15million-£20m.

Should they succeed it would be a big challenge for Wan-Bissaka.

The 23-year-old is strong defensively but has struggled to show consistent quality going forward.

Solskjaer is likely to experiment with the new position in pre-season.

It would make United’s backline more flexible if he could copy Kyle Walker at Manchester City and play both slots.
