Atletico to sign England's Trippier from Tottenham, say reports

Share

Saliba has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League this summer after emerging as one of the most highly-rated defenders in French football having broken into the Saint-Etienne first team last season.

Trippier's final match for Tottenham will prove to have been the Champions League final loss against Liverpool, which was played at the Wanda Metropolitano, now his new home.

A key man in England's run to the last four of the 2018 World Cup, scoring the opening goal in the semi-final defeat to Croatia, Trippier's form dipped during the course of the 2018/19 campaign.

Whilst initial reports put the transfer fee at €25m, with some going as low as €20m, Wednesday's edition of Marca reports Atletico will be sending €30m to Tottenham for the fullback.

The England global has been heavily linked with a move away from Spurs this summer, as a number of clubs from overseas circled the 28-year-old.

On Sunday, July 14, Middleton is expected to return to the tournament alongside Prince William for the men's singles finals. It's so good to have people like that just to know. "I came on court and did my best". "That's all I want to be to her".

Spurs signed Trippier from Burnley in 2015 initially to provide back-up for Kyle Walker.

Spurs also had a bid accepted for the defender so says the report, but Saliba has chosen a move to the Gunners over Spurs.

Kieran Trippier has joined Atletico Madrid on a three-year contract after leaving Tottenham in a deal reportedly worth €22million (£22m).

Spurs confirmed that Rose has been granted time off "to explore prospective opportunities with other clubs", along with striker Vincent Janssen and winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.

Trippier will be the first English player to play for Atletico in La Liga and the third British player in Spain's top flight next season alongside Scottish forward Jack Harper of Getafe and Real Madrid's Gareth Bale.
