Man Utd have a plan for AWB amid £18m Trippier links

Man Utd are planning a formation change so Kieran Trippier and Aaron Wan-Bissaka can play together in 2021/22, according to reports.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have already been busy in the transfer market. They have agreed an €85m deal with Borussia Dortmund with Jadon Sancho. 

Man Utd are also being heavily linked with Raphael Varane and Trippier. Varane is expected to cost the Red Devils around £50m.

Trippier meanwhile is thought to be costing them a fee in the region of £18m. The 30-year-old helped Atletico Madrid beat Barcelona and Real Madrid to the La Liga title in 2020/21.

The former Tottenham full-back went onto impress for England at Euro 2020. Wan-Bissaka is currently Man United‘s first-choice right-back. He joined them from Crystal Palace in 2019 for £45m plus add-ons.

Despite them wanting Trippier, United still have plans for Wan-Bissaka according to The Sun. They suggest that concerns over Wan-Bissaka’s crossing tempted them to make a move for Trippier.

They add that they plan to move Wan-Bissaka to centre-back as part of a back three, while Trippier will operate as a wing-back.

Earlier this month, Jose Mourinho admitted that he may have been “too harsh” on Luke Shaw during their time together at Man Utd:

“I always try to find what I can see as the weakness of the player and sometimes I’m successful, other times I’m not.

“Maybe I was too harsh with him, maybe he was not ready for that.

“The injury was such an incredible injury but I think in this moment the country looks to him and deservedly as a proper left-back for the national team from my side I can only say congratulations to him because he did it by himself for sure, with the coaches of the club and the national team.

“I think that he has more to give because his potential is good and now he is defending well and knows how to defend inside which was a weakness for him and when he goes forward the team loses the ball, his recovery back shows how much better intensity [he has] going forward, more intensity, more crosses. I think he was good.”
