Trippier to remain at home with Atletico switch looming
Kieran Trippier may well miss Tottenham’s pre-season tour to Asia in order to finalise a move to Atletico Madrid, reports claim.
Having endured a tough season in 2018-19 for Spurs, the 28-year-old has been strongly linked with an exit from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer, with a number of clubs thought to be interested.
Juventus and Napoli have both been mentioned as possible destinations but it seems as though Atletico are now at the front of the queue for his signature.
The man capped 16 times by England was due to fly out to the Far East on Wednesday but it has been claimed Spurs will let him stay in order to sort out the potential move to La Liga.
It is thought that Trippier will command a fee in the region of £20m which should not be a problem for Los Rojiblancos with the recent sale of Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona.
