Why Solskjaer should add Kieran Trippier to his Manchester United squad

According to TalkSPORT (h/t Daily Star), Manchester United are interested in bringing back Kieran Trippier to the Premier League. The Atletico Madrid star has impressed during his stay in Spain but is currently serving a long ban. Nonetheless, Manchester United want to add another right-back.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has his limitations

For all the hullabaloo surrounding Manchester United’s central defenders, there has been little fuss around United’s first-choice right-back. Since his arrival from Crystal Palace in 2019, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been enormous for the club. There is perhaps no better full-back who can tackle and deal with 1-v-1 situations better than him.

There does, however, remain a downside to him. His attacking contribution leaves the team a bit unbalanced in shape. He isn’t like the modern full-backs who like to maraud up the flanks, putting in crosses. That leaves a lot of work for someone like Greenwood to do.

Another reason United are looking to bring in another right-back is that the club lack quality options in that area. Diogo Dalot was loaned out while Timothy Fosu-Mensah is likely to leave the club. Manchester United are rightly targeting someone like Trippier to solve this problem.

Manchester United need more depth and Trippier could be a good signing

The Englishman moved to Spain last summer and despite being troubled by injuries last season, he went on to make 33 appearances and helped Atletico finish third in the league. He was also a regular starter for England in the 2018 World Cup.

The 30-year-old has been consistent in the last few years and has gone from strength to strength. He has been excellent at both ends of the pitch. Apart from defending, he is also capable of delivering the goods in the attack.

He is a reliable customer and could also prove to be a difference in United’s backline. Trippier, who has been at the top of his game in the last few years, could provide them with some much-needed quality. Thus, signing the Englishman would be a wise decision by the club.
