Man United’s management’remains interested’ in Kieran Trippier, as Roma ramp up their pursuit of Diogo Dalot.
Since the end of last season, Manchester United has been linked with a deal for Kieran Trippier.
According to rumours, Manchester United is still interested in signing Kieran Trippier and will be willing to sell Diogo Dalot to Roma if the England full-back joins the club in January. Trippier, 31, was widely connected with the Red Devils throughout pre-season after the club’s leadership identified him as a target.
Aaron Wan-attacking Bissaka’s output was reported to be a source of concern, prompting United to investigate other possibilities in the summer transfer window.
After helping Atletico Madrid win La Liga last season, Trippier was soon identified as a prospective signing and was said to be interested on joining the Red Devils.
He was rumored to have made plans for his family to relocate to Manchester over the summer, but a move to United was ultimately denied.
Since then, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has had a sluggish start to the Premier League season, and they are now in sixth place.
With Aaron Wan-Bissaka struggling to impress in the position recently, it appears like United may examine the option of bolstering their ranks at right-back.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are still interested in acquiring Trippier’s talents and may decide to pursue him in January.
According to the report, if United is successful in bringing Dalot to the club, he will be allowed to join Roma.
Jose Mourinho, the manager of Roma, is reportedly interested in signing Dalot, who has battled for first-team minutes at United this season.
The Portuguese defender spent last season on loan at AC Milan, where he made quite an impression.
Over the summer, a permanent move was mooted, but Dalot chose to remain at Old Trafford.
Roma are now thought to have joined Milan in the hunt to sign the 22-year-old, and will be allowed to do so if Trippier joins United in January.
Dalot recently confessed that he turned down a move away from United in order to battle for his spot and improve on his injury-plagued time there thus far.
“You adjust, then you get hurt, and when you come back, the team is at a high level of intensive training and game play,” Dalot explains. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
