Having struggled across all competitions this season, Manchester United are expected to back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his first summer transfer window.

With Antonio Valencia deciding to leave Old Trafford as a free agent and Matteo Darmian’s future uncertain beyond this season, strengthening the right-back position is a priority for the Red Devils.

On April 29th, we covered claims from Italy and France about the 20-time English champions’ interest in Paris Saint-Germain’s Thomas Meunier.

Kieran Trippier of Tottenham Hotspur is another reported target for the Premier League outfit as Sport Mediaset, while discussing Napoli’s interest in the England international, claimed the fullback is also been followed by United.

Sky Italia now claim that Solskjaer’s side could become an ‘obstacle’ for Napoli in signing the player who was born in Bury, Greater Manchester.

It’s explained the former Burnley man ‘supports’ Manchester United and would give them ‘priority’, if they push for a summer transfer.

Trippier has 30 starts for Spurs in all competitions and has one goal and five assists to his name. His experience in the league could make him a valuable addition at United, if they decide to sign the Tottenham defender.

His contract with the north London club runs down in 2022.
