Because of a new Brexit rule, Manchester United has received an unexpected transfer boost.
Due to a recent Brexit ruling, Manchester United could be one step closer to bringing in a new defensive signing this summer.
Manchester United’s pursuit of Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier has been aided by an odd source — Brexit. With La Liga’s restriction on British players having recently expired, Atletico will have to decide whether or not it is worthwhile to maintain hold of the England defender.

Allowing Trippier to depart, on the other hand, might benefit Atletico in some respects.
