Man Utd in right-back conundrum
It reports that the North Londoners want around £30 million for the England international, despite his uninspiring Premier League season after being a standout performer at last summer's World Cup.
Trippier's dip in form has seen him axed from Gareth Southgate's squad for the Nations League, while the fee quoted by Levy has given United plenty to think about with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also considering Crystal Palace's Aaron Wan-Bissaka as an option.
Wan-Bissaka has been a revelation at Selhurst Park and the 21-year-old represents a much younger option than 27-year-old Trippier -- but at £45m, he is also much more expensive.

PAPER TALK (by James Capps): Lukaku hoping for golden goodbye
Solskjaer has preferred Marcus Rashford in the lone striker role since taking charge, and Lukaku is desperate to find regular first-team football elsewhere.
