Atletico Madrid have turned down Manchester United’s bid to sign Kieran Trippier, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The 30-year old has been an integral part of Diego Simeone’s side this past season.
He featured 28 times in the league and helped them to secure the La Liga for the first time since 2014.
Atletico are keen to keep hold of the full-back as they aim to defend their crown next season.
They will allow the player to leave if a bid of around €40 million is made.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to sign a right-back who can provide back-up to Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Trippier would undoubtedly be an excellent option to have in the squad.
The former Tottenham Hotspur defender put in an impressive display against Croatia in England’s opening fixture of Euro 2020.
However, splashing out €40m on a player who will be turning 31 this year does not make sense at all.
It would be far better to give Diogo Dalot a chance to prove himself following a successful loan spell with AC Milan.
