According to The Telegraph, the 30-year-old Tripper has long-term admirers at Old Trafford and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bring in some competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 30-year-old Trippier is in his second season at Atletico Madrid and will have one more year on his present terms in the summer.

The England international left Tottenham for Diego Simeone’s side in July 2019 for a £20m fee and has played 15 times for Atletico this season, who are top of the LaLiga standings and have two games in hand on second-place Real Sociedad.

He has also won 25 caps on the international stage, with his form keeping Wan-Bisska out of Gareth Southgate’s plans.

United manager Solskjaer is not said to have any concerns over Wan-Bissaka’s ability at right-back but instead would view Tripper as an attacking alternative for his side.

Wan-Bissaka has been an ever-present for Solskjaer so far, also making 15 appearances to date.

Wan-Bissaka and United fought back to defeat West Ham 3-1 in the Premier League on Saturday night, lifting them to fifth place in the standings and five points off the top with a game in hand.

Attention at United has promptly switched to Tuesday’s must-win Champions League clash against RB Leipzig in Germany.

If United are beaten by Julian Nagelsmann’s side, they will be dumped into the Europa League.
