Kieran Trippier Set To Join Atletico Madrid In £20m Deal
Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier is on the verge of completing a £20m move to Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.
The England full back joined Spurs from Burnley in June 2015 and has played more than 100 times for the club.
The 28 year old would become Atletico’s third major defensive signing of the summer.
Coach Diego Simeone has already recruited centre-back Felipe from Porto and left-back Renan Lodi from Brazilian side Athletico Paranaense.
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.
The La Liga runners-up did however receive £107.7m from the sale of France striker Antoine Griezmann to champions Barcelona.
