Manchester United will reportedly need to battle off interest from Paris Saint-Germain to land the signature of Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier.
The Red Devils are perceived to have reserved Trippier as the best player to give rivalry to Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back, yet cash is ending up being an issue.
Atletico are thought to need a charge in the area of €50m (£42.9m) to head out in different directions from their best option right-back, which has probably constrained United to search out options like Norwich City’s Max Aarons.

The Red Devils’ interest could now be complicated by PSG, according to France Football, who reports that the Ligue 1 giants are also keeping tabs on the Englishman’s situation.
PSG are supposedly pressing ahead for a move for Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi as a priority, but a recent report claimed that Chelsea are making progress in their own bid to sign the Moroccan, leaving Les Parisiens to consider other options for the right-back spot.
Trippier claimed six assists from 28 La Liga outings in Atletico’s title-winning 2020-21 season, but he was left on the bench for England’s goalless draw with Scotland at Euro 2020 on Friday.
