Newcastle reject Bayern Munich’s improved offer for Kieran Trippier

Newcastle United have rejected a €15million (£12.8m) bid for right-back and captain Kieran Trippier from Bayern Munich, according to The Athletic.

The Bavarians are in the market for a full-back and have turned to the 33-year-old after a deal for Paris Saint-Germain man Nordi Mukiele broke down.

Trippier, who has notched three goals and 18 assists since joining Newcastle in January 2022, has been a crucial player for Eddie Howe’s side.

The former Tottenham Hotspur defender helped Newcastle qualify for the Champions League last term and continues to be a mainstay in the team despite a decline in form.

Trippier’s loss would be massive for Newcastle. The England international has helped them keep four clean sheets in the Premier League this term while creating ten big chances.

His set-piece deliveries are a weapon that Newcastle have maximised since he arrived as the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund’s first signing following their takeover.

Newcastle do not want to let him go. However, he is reportedly interested in the transfer to join the Bundesliga champions which could force their hands.

The Magpies have been limited in the January transfer window due to Financial Fair Play rules, and there have been reports that they need to sell some of their star players.

Miguel Almiron is of interest to Saudi Pro League club Al-Shabab, while Callum Wilson has been linked with a move to AC Milan after Newcastle rejected a loan offer from Atletico Madrid.

A cloud of uncertainty hangs over Bruno Guimaraes’ future, with Paris Saint-Germain monitoring his situation. Joelinton, currently out until the rest of the season, has 18 months left on his contract and could be sold.

Newcastle face a dilemma as they need to refresh their squad but are handicapped by the spending rules, and it will be intriguing to see how they navigate this situation.
