Newcastle United defender Kieran Trippier has spoken of missing a move to Manchester United last summer.

Trippier left Atletico Madrid for Newcastle earlier this January market.

He told the Athletic: “After the Euros, there was a serious interest in me. I should be more careful with my words because I don't want any more trouble, but Manchester United were interested in me.

"We had talks, but Atlético wanted me to be paid the full release clause, which is a lot of money for a 30-year-old player, so I understand why Manchester United dropped the idea of signing me.

"There were options with other clubs, but now I don't care anymore."
