Ole Gunnar Solskjaer turned the tide on a potential Manchester United deal after being impressed by what he saw in pre-season, while Liverpool turned their sights to a sexy young striker who lit up Euro 2020 – all in Tuesday’s transfer chatter.
SOLSKJAER puts an end to MAN UTD’s transmission hopes
chances Male United The English full-back signed Kieran Trippier He collapsed this summer after Solskjaer felt the 30-year-old no longer needed him.
After another impressive performance on the international scene at Euro 2020, Trippier has appeared on the Red Devils’ radar.
It will be Atletico Madrid Open for sale if its £30m valuation is reached. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is currently playing the starting role, although the former Palace full-back will be limited in the future.
Trippier could have introduced a new dimension from an offensive point of view, but the emergence of Diogo Dalot showed in Solskjaer’s pre-season everything he needs to see.
According to The Mirror, “Man United have ended their interest in Trippier”. Solskjaer is said to be “happy” with the business they have done so far, deals to bring Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane to Old Trafford.
As such, the Norwegian is said to have “ruled out making an offer” for Trippier. His desire to enter the new season with the options currently available to him stems from the scintillating pre-season look that Dalot has shown.
The Portuguese, 22, excelled on loan with Milan last year and was once again a major target this summer. though, Man United’s insistence on a £4m loan fee deterred the Serie A side. Instead, they would target Roma player Alessandro Florenzi.
So Dalot stayed with Manchester United after the conclusion of Euro 2020 and made a strong impression in pre-season.
He scored in their recent 4-0 thrashing against Everton, and Solskjaer is said to feel his “re-emergence gives him the depth he wants at right-back”.
