Kieran Trippier is on Manchester United’s wanted list. However, the English right-back will certainly not come to Old Trafford.
Trippier joined Atletico Madrid in 2019 from Tottenham. Trippier has made 83 appearances for Atletico and helped the club win the La Liga trophy last season.
In the near future, Trippier will return to England. Not to Man United, Trippier will join Newcastle United.
Newcastle have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Trippier. The player will come to St James’ Park with a transfer value of 12 million pounds.
After failing to land Trippier, Manchester United had to find another right-back to sign. Here are five players that the Red Devils can target.
Max Aarons is a mainstay in the Norwich City right-back position. He has played regularly for the club since 2018.
Aarons has shown pretty good performances throughout this season. The 22-year-old has played 18 games with one assist.
Aarons’ contract at Carrow Road runs until 2024. He is currently trying to get Norwich out of the relegation zone.
He came to the Bundesliga after impressing with Celtic.
In his new team, Frimpong did not take long to show his quality. The Dutch national player successfully tasted a place in the right sector of the Leverkusen defense.
Frimpong has made 37 appearances for Leverkusen with two goals and seven assists. He is under contract with Die Werkself until 2025.
Tariq Lamptey is a Chelsea academy player. However, Lamptey decided to leave for Brighton & Hove Albion in 2020 after not getting a place in the main.
Since leaving Stamford Bridge, Lamptey has thrived with the Seagulls. Lamptey has always been a mainstay of Graham Potter’s club.
Throughout the 2021/2022 season, Lamptey has appeared in 13 matches in all competitions with one assist. He has been linked with a number of top Premier League clubs.
Nordi Mukiele is one of the French talents who plays at RB Leipzig. He is 23 years old, but he has already made regular appearances for the German club.
In this 2021/2022 season, Mukiele has played 23 matches in all competitions.
Mukiele has the advantage of being able to play in several positions. Mukiele’s main position is right-back, but he can also play at center-back and right-midfield.
Calvin Ramsay, who is only 18 years old, has successfully penetrated the Aberdeen main squad since last season. The right-back player made six appearances last season.
This season, Ramsay has been trusted to appear 19 times in all competitions. He managed to contribute eight assists from these appearances.
Ramsay is under contract with Aberdeen until 2024. The Scottish player is reportedly interested in Eintracht Frankfurt, Bologna and Leicester City.
