Atlético Madrid star Kieran Trippier has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.
It was even suggested the Red Devils tabled a first offer for the right-back, but it was rejected by the La Liga winners.
Mundo Deportivo reiterates the Old Trafford club’s interest in the 30-year-old. The report also provides an insight into Los Rojiblancos’ reaction to United’s initial proposal and their demands to let the player leave the club this summer.
It’s claimed Diego Simeone’s side are ‘calm’ about the constant reports of Manchester United wanting to sign the England international, because he has a contract until 2023.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side reportedly made a €14m bid, which was ‘considered ridiculous’ by the Madrid club.
According to the report, United’s proposal was ‘received almost with contempt’ by Atlético.
They have informed the Premier League runners-up to ‘put good money’ on the table to acquire the former Burnley man’s services. His release clause is set at €40m, and a fee of around €35m should be enough to satisfy the Spanish champions.
Mundo suggest it’s a ‘lot of money’ to sign Trippier, who is expected to be a back-up for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
