Kieran Trippier started the European Championship final against Italy
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.
Trippier has a year remaining on his Atletico contract, which also includes the option of a 12-month extension, but the former Tottenham Hotspur man is ready to tell the Spaniards that he wants to return to England.
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.
Trippier performed brilliantly for England in the European Championships and provided the cross from which United left-back Luke Shaw scored in the final against Italy.
His performances in the tournament, many of which came in a back four or five that also included United captain Harry Maguire, as well as Shaw, will have only heightened interest in Trippier.
But, having spent £73m on Jadon Sancho, United ideally want to sell players before deciding whether or not to make another bid for Trippier, who started his career at Manchester City.
Trippier’s family are United fans and a return to Manchester would be considered a move home for the player, who grew up in Bury.
During his two years in Spain, Trippier last season became a La Liga champion with Atletico and England manager Gareth Southgate has hailed the influence manager Diego Simeone has had on his defensive capabilities.
But, despite greatly enjoying his time in Spain, Trippier now believes the time is right to move back to the Premier League and try to win his first honours in the English game.
