Despite signing Diogo Dalot, and despite already having endured one of the most protracted negotiations of the summer with Tottenham Hotspur, fresh reports have emerged linking Manchester United with a move for Kieran Trippier.

The right-back's stock has risen significantly in recent times and he is gaining attention from across Europe.

According to the Daily Mail, they have joined Real Madrid in tracking the 27-year-old after his brilliant performances for England at this summer's World Cup.

The set-piece specialist made it in to FIFA's Team of the Tournament this summer.

Trippier was one of the stars of England's World Cup campaign, after emerging as Tottenham's right back following the sale past year of Kyle Walker.

Without any new legislation and using existing authorities, DoD will establish several of the component parts of the Space Force. The US Armed Forces are made up of the five armed service branches: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy.

The 27-year-old right back was one of England's most consistent performers at the tournament in Russian Federation, as Gareth Southgate's men reached the semi-finals. Trippier would be a huge upgrade on Antonio Valencia but it is hard to see United spending any funds they do have on another right back.

The Premier League window shuts on Thursday at 5pm, and United are now in talks with Tottenham over Trippier's defensive team-mate Toby Alderweireld.

PSG, Real and Juventus, though, could well provide Manchester United with competition for Trippier in the future.

PSG have lost Brazil right back Dani Alves to injury and are thought to be looking for a replacement, while Juventus are keen on finding support for high-profile arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid are also seeking a right back and the fact that the European window does not close until the end of the month may keep Spurs on tenterhooks.
