A great Tottenham’s England right-back Kieran Trippier is close to completing a £20m move to Atletico Madrid. According to the source, the 28-year-old footballer joined Spurs from Burnley in June 2015 and has played more than 100 times for the club, with his last appearance coming in the Champions League final in June.
Kieran Trippier later admitted, he was not sure he would see out his contract, which was due to expire in 2022.
The player would become Atletico’s third major defensive signing of the summer. Reveals from Coach Diego Simeone has already recruited centre-back Felipe from Porto and left-back Renan Lodi from Brazilian side Athletico Paranaense.
However, with Portugal striker Joao Felix brought in for £113m and midfielder Marcos Llorente arriving from city rivals Real for about £36m, Trippier’s arrival would bring Atletico’s total transfer spend so far this summer to in excess of £170m.
