According to The Express, Tottenham Hotspur want £40 million for Kieran Trippier, with Premier League rivals Manchester United interested in the former Burnley defender.

Tottenham have reportedly made Trippier available for sale, with United and Italian club Napoli claimed to want the former Manchester City prospect.

 

Healthy profit

Trippier has been on the books of Tottenham since the summer of 2015 when he joined from Burnley for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £3.5 million.

The 28-year-old right-back does have his flaws and is not exactly the best in his position in the Premier League, but for that (reported) price, it has to be said that the England international has been a bargain signing for Spurs.

With Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy reportedly demanding over 11 times of what the North London outfit paid for the England international, it does appear that they are looking for a hefty profit.

Tottenham have progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League and are also aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League.
