The transfer silly season continues, this morning Tottenham Hotspur’s Kieran Trippier is being linked with a move to Real Madrid.
According to The Sun, the Spanish giants are considering making a bid of £50million for the 27-year-old, who joined Tottenham from Burnley three years ago for just £3.5million and has four years left on his current deal.
Trippier was arguably England’s best performer during their World Cup campaign in Russia which saw them eventually bow out at the semi-final stage. He created a staggering 24 chances for England at the tournament – a record for an England player since 1966, breaking Bobby Charlton’s total of 18 in 1966.
The Sun claim that sources close to the player have spoken about his awareness of Real’s interest, but we all know that it would take a significant offer for Tottenham to even consider parting company with Trippier, who is now established as our first-choice right-back.
We all know that Serge Aurier can hardly take a throw-in and is a defensive liability, just cast your mind back to the away leg against Juventus in the Champions League.
It’s hardly surprising that the likes of Real and other European clubs have sat up and taken notice of Trippier after his international heroics, but we firmly expect him to remain a Spur.
