TOTTENHAM have rejected a £17million bid from Napoli for Kieran Trippier with the defender holding out for a dream move to Manchester United, according to reports.
Mauricio Pochettino is ready to cash in on the England right-back after struggling for consistency this season.
A host of European clubs including Atletico Madrid and Everton are ready to throw their names in the hat for his signature.
But Trippier has his eyes set on a high profile switch to Old Trafford.
The 28-year-old Northerner was born in Bury and spent his youth career at Man City before making a permanent switch to Burnley.
SunSport exclusively revealed how Poch is demanding around £40m for the World Cup star.
It could price Napoli out of a move whose opening offer was swiftly turned down, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
Trippier has three years left on his current contract at Spurs which has kept his value high.
United are in the market for a new right-back to replace Ashley Young in a bid to transform their squad.
