ATLETICO MADRID star Kieran Trippier is ‘looking at houses’ in the north-west of England, according to reports.
The England defender has been linked with a £10million move to Manchester United this summer.
According to The Athletic, Trippier has been seen trying to find a new house near Old Trafford.
The right back may simply be looking to buy a property in the area because he’s from Bury, a town in Greater Manchester.
Or it could be an indication that he’s interested in relocating from Madrid to England ahead of a summer move.
The 30-year-old, who’s just won the LaLiga title with Atletico, is being linked with United.
The Red Devils are believed to be interested in signing another right back to challenge Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to have reservations about the 23-year-old’s offensive ability and needs a more experienced option.

Trippier has been crucial to Atletico’s success this season, making 28 LaLiga appearances as Diego Simeone’s first-choice right back.
The Manchester City academy graduate has previously played for Barnsley, Burnley and Tottenham – helping the latter reach the 2019 Champions League final.
Trippier has played down talk of a move from the Spanish capital, telling the press: “I’m enjoying myself so much out there.
“I’m just fully focused on doing the best I can for my club. I’m absolutely delighted I won the title out there.
“People might not focus on me as much because I’m out there in Spain, the Premier League is the Premier League.
“But I’m enjoying myself, loving it, my family are enjoying it, there’s sunshine every single day so I just need to keep doing as well as I can for Atletico.
“I’m delighted I’ve done that and now I’m part of England. I know Gareth watches the games along with his staff.
“So for me it’s just about doing as well as I can at the highest level to try to be selected for as long as I can with the national team.”
