Premier League giants, Man United will reportedly not be able to make a move for Atletico Madrid’s full-back Kieran Trippier until they sell Diogo Dalot.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seeking competition for their first-choice defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back, Trippier is believed to be on the 20-times English champions radar for a return to the English top-tier.
The ex-Spurs defender played a vital role under Diego Simeone during Atletico’s title-winning season last season, however, is supposedly open to making a move back to England this summer.
However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports that the 20-times English champion must first sort out Dalot’s future at the club before they can consider making a move for Trippier.
Dalot impressed on loan at AC Milan last campaign and is reportedly wanted back by the Serie A giants, with Romano adding that the Red Devils want to offload the Portuguese full-back on loan for between €4m (£3.4m) and €5m (£4.2m) with an option to buy.
Dalot has managed to found back of the net twice and assisted three more from 33 appearances in all competitions for Milan last campaign, and his current contract at Old Trafford is set to expire in 2023.
Trippier’s deal with Atletico Madrid will also run out in just under two years’ time, and he set up his teammates six times en route to the La Liga crown last campaign.
