Manchester United remain interested in a move for Atlético Madrid full-back Kieran Trippier, but the decision now rests in Ralf Rangnick’s hands.
That’s according to AS, who say sources at Old Trafford say that Trippier is ‘still on the agenda’ for them, but it will be up to Rangnick to sign him.
They explain that Atlético refused to negotiate for Trippier in the summer when Manchester United were keen to add him as competition for Aaron Wan Bissaka.
He stayed in Spain, but there are ‘several suitors’ for him in England, and Manchester United remain in the hunt, with it stated they are still ‘eyeing him up’.
Sources at the club say that he remains on their list of potential targets, but any transfer decisions now rest in Rangnick’s hands, with him set be manager until the end of the season and then a consultant for another two years after that.
He is yet to ‘ratify’ his plans for the January transfer window but needs to do so quickly as Diogo Dalot is looking to leave Old Trafford in the winter window.
Manchester United are not the only interested party as Newcastle are also keen and have ‘made enquiries’ for the full-back, who remains ‘attracted’ to the idea of returning to England.
Whether that will be with Manchester United, though, is now firmly in Ralf Rangnick’s hands.
