Reported Manchester United target Kieran Trippier produced a disappointing display for Tottenham Hotspur in their 1-0 Champions League semi-final first leg defeat against Ajax on Tuesday, and Red Devils fans were quick to have their say on his display on Twitter.
The Express say that both United and Napoli are chasing the signature of the England international, with trusted Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio believing that the 28-year-old prefers a move to Old Trafford.
Should the former Burnley man sign for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men he would be competing against the likes of Ashley Young and Diogo Dalot for the right-back spot, but on this latest performance he would face a big struggle to get in the starting XI.

According to Squawka he lost possession on 28 occasions – more than anyone else on the pitch – against the Eredivisie giants, while he once again struggled to make much of an impact at both ends of the field as Spurs failed to score or keep a clean sheet.
United supporters certainly weren’t impressed with what they saw from Trippier if their reaction on social media is anything to go by, with one even saying “Trippier is literally worse than Young”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Trippier no thanks get wan bissaka and Meunier! #MUFC

Trippier had a great World Cup but has been awful this season. Definite purchase for #MUFC then 🙁

We'll definitely sign Trippier, goodness me we're stupid

Trippier is awful. I really hope I don't see another article linking us with him. Especially after rumours of a 'British core' being the agenda of the new DoF setup. #MUFC

I really hope want United are just using the Trippier rumours to shift focus away from main targets AWB & Meunier… #mufc

Hope the prospective director of football is watching Spurs tonight & has crossed Kieran Trippier off Woodward’s list of summer targets #mufc

Please don’t sign Trippier it’d be a massive step backwards ? he’s awful #mufc

I’m done if we replace Young with Trippier. He’s actually almost as bad. Just buy someone young and talented. Not another mediocre wasteman.
