Newcastle will require a huge financial package to recruit Kieran Trippier

2

Newcastle United will offer England defender Kieran Trippier the biggest contract in the club’s history to try to tempt him to St. James’ Park in January, 90min understand.

However, there is no guarantee that Atletico Madrid’s defenders will move in the new year.

A right-back is very high on manager Eddie Howe’s wanted list and Trippier is his main goal – but if Newcastle want him, the price tag will probably be huge.

Sources have confirmed for 90min that Trippier – who wanted to move back to England during the summer when Manchester United held talks – is still keen to return to the Premier League, but will need some persuasion to join the relegation-threatened Magpies.

With that in mind, the 31-year-old will be offered a salary of around £ 150,000 a week and a three-and-a-half year contract by Newcastle, who would probably also have to pay a club record fee – or very close to it – to secure his signature . Their current most expensive deal is the £ 39 million they paid Hoffenheim for Joelinton in 2019.

But even a huge contract may not be enough to trap Trippier, as there is still rival interest in the England star.

Manchester United continue to be kept informed of their situation while we understand that Everton, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace are also willing to take a step – if Atletico show an appetite to sell.

Last summer, Rojiblancos refused to make a deal with United and wanted his £ 50m release clause fulfilled. It remains to be seen if Diego Simeone is willing to let Trippier leave this time, which could cause the club to lower its asking price.

Trippier himself is determined to show form in the second half of this season, as he knows it will be crucial for his chances of joining England’s World Cup squad at the end of the year.

The former Burnley and Tottenham man is currently away with a shoulder injury and will not be up and running until January.
