Even if United do sign him, I think it's merely for cover. I think the move makes sense if we had a manager who would make the tactical changes to start Tripper over AWB in games where we need a more attacking minded full back on the right, or bring him on for his crossing as a sub to change the game. There's been times when Bissaka has looked he's got nothing left in the tank and yet he starts every game.
No chance. Trippier gets games for England, AWB can’t even get near the squad. He is levels better.

you think Ole is ready to give up on Bissaka?
Unless we’re playing a top 4 team away from home & want to do a job on their winger I really don’t understand why anyone who has ever watched football would play Aaron Wan-Bissaka over Kieran Trippier. The difference between them in ability on the ball is clear & obvious. We have one of the best headers of the ball in the history of football playing up front. Kieran Trippier is an accomplished crosser of the ball. Aaron Wan-Bissaka looks like bambi on ice whenever the ball is under his control. It’s really not a difficult choice

We do not play a back five
When will people realise that Trippier is not the answer. Go and speak to any Spurs fan or watch a game where he is in a 4 and has to defend hes awful.
and from what we've seen this season, still an upgrade

Athletico don't always play with a back five and he looks fine. He's improved that side of his game a lot under Simeone. He would have been a great signing for us since Dalot is a far bigger defensive worry and he can actually put in a good cross.

He's still better than AWB and his ice skate boots, he seems to spend most of his game stretching for either his late tackles or his bad first to his.

He's one of the last few players that need upgrading and also the manager.
