Evening Ed,

If you have time.

Been reading a few more murmurs of Trippier being a strong possibility. Any update on that?

Also been reading that there may be a De Gea + cash for Oblak situation on the table but that depends on Henderson been sold. Does this have any validity?

{Ed002's Note - Keiran Trippier (RB) Atletico will sell. They are likely hoping for Everton interest as well as Manchester United but that may have left with CA.

Jan Oblak (G) PSG will offer an option if available.}

Thanks a lot for that Ed. Much appreciated.

Trippier would be excellent for us.
For those games where we play against a 5-4-1 and rely completely on Bruno or Pogba to do something special, Trippier’s delivery would be invaluable.
No brainer IMO.

He isn't very good. IMO he is overrated.

Solid EPL proven RB who is quick, works hard and has an excellent cross on him. At 30 years old he'll offer a great rotation option with AWB for a couple of years. While with a bit of luck AWB might learn some of Trippier's attacking traits and improve his all round game.

2 months ago you posted this shappy changed your mind again again again again again?
Secondly, I find signing a RB frankly ridiculous in itself. In the past 4 years we have spent 20m on Dalot and 50m on AWB both primarily RB's. We also have Williams who is naturally a RB and Ethan Laird who is doing very well on loan.

Why spend money on a RB who isn't better than AWB when we have Dalot, Williams and Laird already at the club who fulfil that role?

I just think its madness and further proof of how poorly run we are as a club.

I think Trippier is a good option to be fair. Prem proven with Spurs and Burnley before that. Much more attacking edge than AWB so gives a different option. I think if Dalot was going to stay we would have know about it by now. He was a Mourinho buy when clearly we prioritised the wrong 'young Portuguese defender' when you consider we were linked with Ruben Dias around same time period. Another great CB option we let go to a rival!

The first question is how we spent £50m on AWB if he doesn’t fully meet with what Ole wanted? 2. Why can his attacking not be improved by coaching? 3. Dalot was one of the most highly thought of young right fullbacks in Europe, how did we not coach him better? 4. Williams has the United DNA and all that, would accept being back up, so why ignore him? 5. Laird.

So great idea to spend our money and buy another right back. Lastly, is Trippier one of the 3 main purchases? Trippier, Heaton and who is the last?
