Ahead of a ‘better offer,’ Kieran Trippier selects between Arsenal and Manchester United.
Kieran Trippier wants to return to the Premier League, and two clubs have expressed interest in him.
According to rumors, Kieran Trippier would prefer a move to Manchester United than Arsenal, and the Red Devils could make a new bid this week. Throughout the summer transfer window, Trippier was linked with a return to the Premier League. The former Tottenham Hotspur player has spent the previous two seasons with Atletico Madrid in La Liga.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
Arsenal are looking for a right-back to replace Hector Bellerin, who is seeking a move away from the club.
Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares haven’t made a strong case for the regular berth on the right side of the defense.
United has also been considering Trippier as a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
However, both clubs have been scared off by Atletico Madrid’s asking price.
Trippier’s £34 million release clause must be met in full before he can depart this summer, according to Atletico.
Arsenal is still interested in signing the 30-year-old, according to Eurosport, and are seeking to negotiate a lower price.
According to the same source, Trippier would prefer to join United over Mikel Arteta’s team.
United are thought to have made a £10 million approach for Trippier earlier in the transfer window and could make a better offer before the deadline on Tuesday.

The Red Devils would be able to provide more Champions League football as well as a much better chance of winning major trophies.
Arsenal, on the other hand, has had a dreadful start to the season.
The Gunners have lost 2-0 to Brentford and Chelsea, and are currently 19th in the Premier League rankings, ahead of a weekend match against reigning champions Manchester City.
For the first time in almost 26 years, they will not compete in any European competition.
Arsenal has been unable to sell Bellerin, with Inter Milan being the most heavily connected with his signing this summer.
Any deal for Trippier would almost certainly be contingent on Bellerin’s departure.
Meanwhile, United may be included in the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
