Premier League clubs will have to pay out £20million to get Kieran Trippier back to England this summer as Atletico Madrid is deciding their price for the former Tottenham player.
Last summer, the 29-year-old transferred to Wanda Metropolitano with the La Liga side splashing £20million on England’s international requirements.
Between 2011 and 2015, Trippier broke through at Burnley playing 185 times for the Clarets, scoring six goals and providing 37 assists with his spectacular delivery from outside wide.
According to news, Atletico Madrid is asking for a £20 m bid from the Premier League side to secure Kieran Trippier. The former Tottenham Hotspur man joined Diego Simeone last summer and has had an outstanding campaign in La Liga since arriving in Spain.
Trippier’s performances have reportedly led to some Premier League clubs’ attention, but Atletico isn’t ready to part with the right-back
on the cheap.
According to The Sun, Trippier was on the lookout for new homes in the north-west, and there is speculation that his former club, Burnley, is interested in getting him back to Turf Moor. Given the financial effects of the coronavirus pandemic, La Liga plans to recover the entire £20 million that they paid for England International last year. The report claims a return to Burnley could be on the cards for a 29-year-old who recently made headlines after being charged with an alleged breach of the betting rules.
Trippier made 19 appearances on Spain’s top flight during the 2019-20 season, scoring 3 assists.
Nonetheless, Atletico’s £20 m price tag could prove to be a stumbling block, with Burnley unlikely to pay their former star’s hefty fee.
The 29-year-old shone for Gareth Southgate’s side at the 2018 World Cup, sending the nation into bedlam when he scored the opener in Croatia’s semi-final loss.
