Just one complete season in the Crystal Palace jersey was enough for Aaron Wan Bissaka to impress the leaders of Manchester United with his defensive abilities, primarily the "one on one" game, and make them pay 55,000,000 euros for him.
However, the 23-year-old Englishman at Old Trafford did not show that he is capable of playing in both directions, which is unthinkable for a modern defender, who plays in a team with the highest goals, so United set out in search of new players on the right flank.
However, in the time of the corona crisis, they will not be as generous as when they paid 55 million euros for Wan Bissaka in the summer of 2019, which is also indicated by the information of Mundo Deportivo. Namely, as the Catalan newspaper writes, the Manchester club wants to go for Trippier again.
But it is hard to imagine that, when they did not succed a year ago, that they will succeed this summer, especially because they offered 12.000,000 euros to Atletico, Mundo Deportivo points out. At the zenith of his career, as a standard national team player, who will represent England at the European Championship? After a season in which he was irreplaceable on the right flank (he did not play all 90 minutes in only two of the 28 games in the Primera) and won the title with Atletico Madrid? Not going to happen.
Atletico is satisfied with Trippier's games, the Englishman is happy in Madrid and he has two more years of contract with the new champion of Spain. Therefore, they do not have to hurry with the sale and they hope for the amount written in the clause.
And it amounts to the entire 40,000,000 euros, and if Manchester United does not approach the mentioned figure with their offer, negotiations will not take place. Still, most Manchester United fans are surprised, considering that United need players in some other positions, and that Wan Bissaka is perhaps the best player of their club lately.
Although he has often been criticized for offensive flaws, Wan Bissaka has obviously improved that aspect of the game in the second part of the season, and now looks much better. But it is hard to imagine that, when they did not succed a year ago, that they will succeed this summer, especially because they offered 12.000,000 euros to Atletico, Mundo Deportivo points out.
However, it is never known whether his injury may occur, and there is almost no reserve right back at United. Atletico Madrid will hardly let Trippier go, but let's wait a while, who knows what will happen
