Kane claim made, Telles hints that he will stay at United and Trippier closing in on United move in top Manchester United news….
Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier is reportedly close to joining Manchester United.
Trippier joined Tottenham in June 2015 and it took him a while to break into the team, making just 18 Prem appearances during his first two seasons in North London, But after Kyle Walker’s move to Manchester City he made the right-back position his own, helping Spurs reach the 2019 Champions League final.
Trippier has spent the last two seasons at Atletico, winning LaLiga last term, but it seems that he is very keen on making a move back to the Premier League this summer transfer window.
The Spanish champions did not want to part with the England right-back, who has two years left on his current contract, and despite all the rumours, They are yet to receive an offer from United.
However, according to the latest reports in the media, United have indeed made an offer to sign the Englishman and he is closing on a £30 million move back to the Premier League
Rio Ferdinand recently advised his former club against signing Atletico Madrid star, he told Metro: “I don’t think they’d buy someone to come in and play [every week], I think whoever’s coming in there is going to be playing backup.
“They spent £50million on [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka, not to be a backup or No2. He [Trippier] wouldn’t be my choice if I’m honest, but I see the qualities he has.
“But Trippier definitely wouldn’t be my choice in terms of the profile of player that I’d be bringing in to play as a No2 right-back”
It has been a shock to see United linked with another transfer move for Tripper, especially as there are more important areas of the pitch that the club need to work on in the coming months.
But he could be a solid signing for the club right?
Alex Telles is looking forward to a second season at Old Trafford, despite there being plenty of speculation surrounding his future.
Telles signed for Porto from Galatasaray in 2016 and went on to win two Portuguese league titles and the Portuguese Cup in nearly 200 appearances for the club and he was the second signing for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
He has made some impressive performances for the club since his move to Old Trafford, but he has not been able to make the impact on the side that many expected and there has been alot of rumours that he could leave the club.
But he has opened up and suggested that he is staying at Old Trafford, The 28-year-old told the club’s official website: “I’m really happy to be back here.
“It’s a pleasure to be at Manchester United coming into my second season.
“Last season, we came really close to winning trophies, so we go into this next season with a lot of desire and I really want to show my work and my value here at the club.”
Telles has also been discussing United’s trip to Derby County this weekend, who are managed by Old Trafford legend Wayne Rooney.
The player is expected to start at left-back, with Luke Shaw on holiday following England’s Euro 2020 campaign.
Telles told the club’s official website: “I’m really looking forward to the game, I’m going into the game with a lot of desire.
“I think it’s a really great opportunity for us players who have been here for the last two weeks.
“It’s going to be a tough test but we’re really well prepared for it.
“We’ve been working really hard in training today, and this last week, and I believe it’s an opportunity to show my value my quality and my potential here at Manchester United.
“I know Manchester United Football Club and the fans really believe in me.”
Harry Kane’s England team-mates believe the long-term Manchester United target will skip training in an effort to force a transfer move away from Tottenham
With major silverware proving elusive in north London, it has been suggested that a man who captained England to the Euro 2020 final this summer will seek a switch in order to land some trophies
He has been constantly linked with both Manchester giants, as they seek to both bolster their squads for the upcoming Premier League season, in which they both wants to win that title
Now, according to the Telegraph, several of Kane’s England team-mates believe he may avoid pre-season training with Spurs to try and push a deal through, knowing that Spurs will not want to let him leave this summer
Leading sides across Europe would welcome the opportunity to add such a prolific presence to their respective ranks, but Spurs have a 27-year-old striker tied to a contract through to 2024 and remain reluctant sellers, meaning that only a big offer would see him leave Tottenham
Quizzed on Kane’s future at his first press conference since taking the reins at Tottenham, Nuno told reporters: “Harry is our player. No need to talk about anything else. Period.
“Now is the time for Harry to recover his energy and rest. When he returns is the time to talk. He needs to prepare for what’s to come.
“I have no doubts in my mind. I have no doubts. What I wish is for Harry to recover well, to have a good rest and when he arrives he will feel that every one of us has to commit ourselves to become better.
“We are very ambitious, we are ambitious people and we want to do it well and [we have] no doubts on Harry on that.”
