Premier League giants Manchester United still have an interest in Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier according to a publication from the Daily Mirror.

It was revealed that the Red Devils are still targeting the 28-year-old Spurs right-back.

Manchester United are said to be afraid that Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy will drive up the transfer fee for Kieran Trippier who’s presently rated at £30m.

The 28-year-old has also been attracting the interest of Italian Serie A giants Napoli apart from Manchester United.

The Red Devils are also targeting Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka who’s available for more money (at around £45m) than Kieran Trippier but he’s seven years younger than the Eagles defender.

Manchester United have made the signing of a new right-back their priority during this summer’s transfer window.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has several right-back options at his disposal but none of the players produced the quality needed for the position consistently.

Right-backs Diogo Dalot, Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia all failed to perform well consistently during the just concluded season though it must be pointed out that the latter (Valencia) has left the club upon the expiration of his Manchester United contract.
