Kieran Trippier was one of England’s best players in their semi-final run at the World Cup. He scored his first international goal of the tournament in the semi-final against Croatia through a brilliant free-kick.
Trippier’s performances in Russia has made him a target for many top clubs Europe. Real Madrid is one of them. Los Blancos have reportedly made a bid of £50 million, a record fee for any English player. Trippier signed a five-year deal with Tottenham Hotspur last summer and the club will certainly not let go of him that easily.
Real Madrid already have Dani Carvajal at the right-back position and they signed Alvaro Odriozola from Real Sociedad for £31m. With two right-backs already at their disposal, the fact that Real Madrid want to spend £50 million on another right-back may seem a bit preposterous especially that they need a big money deal to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.
Trippier joined Spurs from Burnley in 2015 and did not have much playing time in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons. Last season however, he played 35 matches across all competitions.
