Kieran Trippier is already house hunting as a move back to the Premier League edges closer.
Manchester United are ready to ramp up their efforts to sign the Atletico Madrid star in the summer transfer window.
Trippier was even named in the Liga Team of the Year after a campaign that saw him make 28 appearances, grabbing six assists along the way too.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on bringing in some competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who is the only senior right-back at the club.
It has worked on the other flank, where the signing of Alex Telles has seen Luke Shaw take his game to a new level.
And it could cost United just £10m with The Athletic reporting that all parties are keen on a deal to go ahead.
Trippier wants to return to the Premier League despite just winning La Liga and is already looking for houses in the area.
The England international has enjoyed his time in Spain and believes Simeone has improved him drastically as a player.
But the defender, born and raised in Bury, cannot resist a return to the north-west – especially after a year where so many players around the world have felt isolated due to the pandemic.
Trippier is hoping to make a big impact with England this summer at Euro 2020, where he is hoping to step up in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s absence.
“The style of play, tactically Gareth’s brilliant so is Simeone,” he said. “
They’ve got similarities, the way they set the teams up and the way they are as characters.
“A little bit different character-wise because Simeone is just absolutely crazy, as you can see on the touchline, sprinting down the tunnel when we won the other day, but both fantastic managers.”
Meanwhile, United are stepping up their efforts to secure their summer targets after a tough year last transfer window.
