Atletico Madrid To Bid For Tottenham Defender

Trippier (12) opened the scoring in England's World Cup semi-final loss to Croatia.

Trippier had been one of the most impressive performers as England finished fourth at the World Cup in Russian Federation last summer, scoring early in the semi-final defeat to Croatia in Moscow, but endured a hard season last time out as his form dipped.

"Marca" report that it just requites Trippier to sign his contract with Atletico Madrid.

Trippier's departure leaves Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino to choose from Serge Aurier, Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth on the right side of defence.

The England worldwide had been expected to leave North London this summer and was initially linked to a move to Serie A with Napoli and Juventus mooted as potential suitors.

Spurs also had a bid accepted for the defender so says the report, but Saliba has chosen a move to the Gunners over Spurs.

Wait, what? Mercedes-Benz X-Class to be discontinued, report suggests
Owners of the Nissan Navara-based pickup could easily wheel in a pair of bicycles into the bed of the X-Class and call it a day. Stuttgart had ruled out the United States as a market as that is the domain of the full-sized pick-up truck.

The club confirmed on Wednesday morning that the 29-year-old was not part of the squad travelling for their pre-season tour and announced he was one of three players left behind to work on a potential exit.

"Because of all this, we welcome Trippier to the Atleti Family and wish him the best of luck at his new home".

Trippier may well be able to extol the virtues of leaving Spurs for Madrid, pushing Daniel Levy to try and find a replacement in the market.

Rose, Janssen and Nkoudou have been granted extra time off granted "in order to explore prospective opportunities with other clubs".

Trippier will be the first English player to play for Atletico in La Liga and the third British player in Spain's top flight next season alongside Scottish forward Jack Harper of Getafe and Real Madrid's Gareth Bale.
