Newcastle have launched a bid to sign Kieran Trippier ahead of Manchester United in January.
In the January transfer window, Manchester United may have to compete for Kieran Trippier.
Newcastle United believe they can sign Kieran Trippier before the end of the month.
Eddie Howe wants to bring the Atletico Madrid fullback back to Newcastle as one of his first signings as manager, and club officials are confident they can do so.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled the official 202122 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional styles.
As he looks to steer the Magpies away from relegation, Howe should have the opportunity to bolster his squad as soon as possible.
And by outbidding United for Trippier’s services, Newcastle’s new owners could make a big statement in the transfer market.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was interested in signing the 31-year-old in the summer, but Atletico Madrid snubbed him with a £30 million asking price.
And, following Solskjaer’s departure, it’s unclear whether Trippier will remain on United’s wishlist for the winter transfer window.
Newcastle is planning a January move for Trippier, according to the Mirror.
At the start of a new era at St James’ Park, Howe wants to add prominent personalities and leaders to his squad.
Club officials believe Trippier wants to return to England after leaving Tottenham Hotspur in 2019.
The England international has made no secret of his desire to return to the Premier League, and with his Atletico contract expiring in 2022, they could cash in.
Trippier and his family are said to be happy in Spain, and he’s had success there, helping Diego Simeone’s team win La Liga last season.
Simeone has been more experimental with his formations this season, limiting his minutes.
He’s been out with a shoulder injury recently, but he’ll be back on the field before the holidays.
And speculation about his future grew after he left his previous agency, Pitch, for Base Soccer earlier this year.
Newcastle hasn’t won a game this season and is fighting for Premier League survival.
And, despite the fact that their Saudi-backed takeover has given them financial clout, an approach from a heavyweight like United would be difficult to refuse.
It would, however, be a wise decision.
