Matt Law writes: “England star Kieran Trippier is desperate to return to the Premier League this summer, as the right-back waits to see whether or not Manchester United make a new bid for him.
“United have already failed in at least one bid to sign Trippier this summer, with Atletico Madrid wanting around £30million for the 30-year-old.
“It is understood that two other Premier League clubs, apart from United, have shown an interest in signing Trippier but a move to Old Trafford is believed to be his preference.”
Will United return for Kieran Trippier?
Man United have already seen two bids turned down by Atletico Madrid but now that the player has himself shown a desire to return to England, things could pan out differently.
Solskjaer wants to add competition in that right-back role by signing Kieran Trippier and since the player has shown an inclination to join them, Manchester United are expected to turn up with yet another bid for the 30-year-old.

According to the latest report by The Sun, Manchester United are confident they will be able to land the right-back for as low as £18 million.
Kieran Trippier is valued at £18 million by TransferMarkt and has two more years left on his current deal with Atletico Madrid. So we don’t think the Spanish side will let him leave this summer at base price.
But things are starting to pick up pace once again meaning Atleti might have to lower their original demands and let the England international head back home before the 2021-22 season kicks off.
