Trippier celebrated La Liga title success with Atletico in May but after two impressive seasons in Spain is considering a return to England this summer.

Manchester United have reportedly opened talks with the Spanish champions over a move for the former Tottenham right-back, who is said to have begun house hunting ahead of a return to the Premier League.

The former Barcelona youngster is admired by Atletico sporting director Andrea Berta, with Bellerin himself open to a return to Spain.

Trippier joined Atletico for £20m from Tottenham in 2019 and the England defender has two years to run on his deal in the Spanish capital.

But the right-back is keen on a return to England after winning La Liga with Diego Simeone’s side and his family already reside in the north-west.

United are eager to bring in a more attacking-minded option to compete with Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back.
