MANCHESTER UNITED and Tottenham are among a whopping NINE Premier League clubs reportedly interested in Kieran Trippier.
Die right-back has been heavily linked with a return to England since leaving for Atletico Madrid from Spurs back in 2019.
But Atletico’s insistence any buyer pays his £50million release clause in full has so far put off potential suitors.
The 31-year-old’s high energy would fit well into new boss Ralf Rangnick’s ultra-pressing style.
And he would provide competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has faced a barrage of questions about his ability this season.
Spurs are also thought to be interested as new manager Antonio Conte sets about his rebuild of the squad.
Trippier enjoyed a four-year spell in North London after joining from Burnley in 2015.

Mega-rich Newcastle are also said to be part of the pack chasing his signature.
Whether or not the LaLiga winner would want to move to the relegation-threatened Toon remains to be seen.
But the Magpies are understood to be willing to make him their highest paid player in a bid to tempt him to St James’ Park.
Trippier has made 14 appearances in the Spanish top flight so far this season but recently spent four games out with a shoulder injury.
