Kieran Trippier is reportedly in talks to buy Raheem Sterling’s £3million mansion ahead of a move to Manchester United.
The 30-year-old right-back has been heavily linked with a move back to England with reports suggesting the Reds are in the final stages of securing a £18million deal.
Trippier is apparently confident that a move to Old Trafford will be completed as he returns from England duty and heads into the final year of his Atletico Madrid contract.
And the former-Tottenham Hotspur man has reportedly been chatting to fellow England hero and Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling, 26, about a deal for the luxury Cheshire pad.
The five-bedroom mansion was bought by Sterling in 2017 and boasts a wildlife pond within its five acres of land.
Now with Trippier’s move to United edging closer, it would make for a convenient location if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer manages to secure his services.
A source told The Sun: “Kieran wants to move back to the UK from Spain and if the deal to Old Trafford goes through he will need to act fast.
“He and Raheem have spoken about the property. If Raheem departs at the same time it makes perfect sense to sell it on quickly — and privately — to Kieran.”
Do you think Trippier is a good signing for Man United? Let us know in the comments section.
Tippier is coming off the back of a monumental season in his career where he was integral in winning La Liga under Diego Simeone.
The full-back also had a part to play in England’s spectacular run to the final at Euro 2020, providing the assist for Luke Shaw’s sumptuous opening goal.
He was labelled a ‘defensive animal’ by England manager Gareth Southgate even though he is best known for his crossing ability, meaning he is adept at both aspects of the game.
United are eager to add Trippier to the side with Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s offensive ability leaving a lot to be desired since his 2019 move from Crystal Palace.
