Kieran Trippier, who played with Son Heung-min in the past, is close to going to Bayern Munich.
Florian Plettenberg, a reporter for Germany’s Sky Sports, said on the 21st (Korean time),
Trippier has reached a verbal agreement with Munich. Munich and Newcastle United are in contact.
Munich still prefers to sign Nordi Mukiele on loan. “We are preparing for the possibility that the transaction will fail,” the report said.
On the same day, reporter Fabricio Romano, who is well-versed in European soccer news, also said, “Munich approached Newcastle to discuss signing Trippier.
Negotiations are underway for a permanent signing, not a loan transfer. 먹튀검증사이트
The agreement has not been completed and is being negotiated. Trippier is interested in a move to Munich if the club agrees on a fee and has received manager Thomas Tuchel’s approval, he said.
Munich has had a lot of trouble with its right back all season. Nusair Mazraoui is playing in that position, but coach Tuchel did not trust him.
Defensive midfielder Konrad Reimer was often used as a right back.
Ultimately, they are looking for a new right-back through the winter transfer market. The target is Trippier.
Trippier transferred from Atletico Madrid to Newcastle through the January 2022 transfer window.
Although he was approaching his mid-30s, Trippier immediately made an impact as the best right-back in the Premier League (PL).
In particular, in the 2022-23 season, he continued to be mentioned in the league’s best eleven and received praise.
Even at the beginning of this season, he showed his form from last season. However, it faltered from the 15th round.
Trippier missed a pass in the away game at Everton, giving Dwight McNeil an excuse to concede a goal.
In the match against Tottenham Hotspur last December, he was criticized for not being able to control Son Heung-min at all.
At that time, Trippier lost twice in one-on-one battles with Son Heung-min,
who played as a left wing forward, and Son Heung-min beat Trippier and recorded his 3rd and 4th assists in the league.
At that time, Tottenham won 4-1 against Newcastle.
Although he is assessed to be out of form, Munich plans to replace him with Trippier if they fail to recruit Mukiele.
However, from the perspective of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), it is not easy to give up Mukiele, the second option, in case Ashraf Hakimi leaves the team.
If Munich succeeds in recruiting Trippier, he will be reunited with Harry Kane and Eric Dier, who were together at Tottenham in the past.
