Tottenham Reportedly Ready To Sanction £40m Impending Transfer To Go Ahead

Published

on

Kyle Walker is set to make a £40million move to Premier League rivals Manchester City, after the completion of Kieran Trippier’s new deal at Tottenham. The England right-back is now free to leave, according to the Metro.

Walker saw his game time at Spurs reduce during the latter stages of the previous campaign, following the emergence of Trippier.

The former Burnley man is set to sign a five-year deal and will also reportedly earn £65,000 a week, according to The Sun. He is now likely to become Spurs’ number one right-back.

Manchester City are in pole position to sign Walker, for a fee in the region of £40million according to the report. However, rivals Manchester United, have also displayed an interest.

City manager Pep Guardiola, has made a new right-back his priority this summer after letting Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna leave at the end of last season.

He is determined to bring in Walker, and Dani Alves, who he coached at Barcelona. It would seem a little strange for Pep to want both, considering that one would sit on the bench and both would receive high wages.

Perhaps, the potential addition of Alves could make Walker look at other options. He wouldn’t leave Spurs to become a second choice somewhere else, you imagine.

Trippier has played a secondary role to Walker for most of his time at Tottenham. However, good form in the second half of last season saw him gain more first-team opportunities. He impressed manager Mauricio Pochettino so much, that the Argentinian is now willing to dispense of Walker.

Trippier continued his rise by making his England debut in their 3-2 defeat against France, a couple of weeks ago. It is believed, that Nice youngster Vincent Marcel could be signed as a replacement for Walker. Pochettino likes to have cover in all positions and will sign a back-up for Trippier, when Walker inevitably leaves.

The former Southampton boss, has shown that he is willing to put form over reputation at Spurs during this situation. Walker, an established England international and a high-flyer for Tottenham over many years, is set to be shown the door to make way for the less-fashionable Trippier.

It is that kind of ruthlessness which he is hoping, will take Spurs to the next level.
