crazy ball – Former Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Tierney has finally spoken about a failed move to Manchester United in the past only to take him to Newcastle United instead.
The English defender is a transfer target The Red Devils who was still coached alongside him by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the time, expected to increase attacking power from the right side of defense as Aaron Wan-Bissaka was deemed to have a less impressive attacking performance.
It was unfortunate that any transfer ultimately failed to materialise, with some media reporting that the main factor was transfer fees, before Manchester United’s interest eventually ended in the sacking of the Norwegian manager.
Meanwhile, Kieran Trippier finally returned to the Premier League to join Newcastle United in a transfer deal worth IDR 243 billion, playing in seven appearances and contributing two goals to help the team finish 11th in the table .
Asked about interest from United, as reported by via mirrors, The 31-year-old defender said: “Yeah right. There are several clubs that are interested. The manager and I spoke at the start of the season and agreed if the opportunity arose I would go. At the beginning of the season I had family problems. In the end, they never came back. In the end, the transfer never happened.”
“I want to go back north. The options are (Manchester) City and Liverpool. As a player, you also have to be realistic in the end. The deal with Newcastle happened very quickly. Manager Eddie Howe took over, which I know well, and it was a good decision. This place is a football city, and people are obsessed with their club.”
